I'm hoping to go to the Wide Hole on Tuesday, It,s been years since I fished here. When I lived in Stockport I fished here more than anywhere else, it's where I caught my first pike and a few years later my biggest Pike of 16lbs.
The wide Hole is a part of the Macclesfield Canal. It's actually the none towpath side of the canal, the none towpath side of the canal subsided due to miming and flooded an adjoining field, it's only about 3 feet deep, but it's full of fish, with a good number of pike and large numbers of Bream.
If I can't get to the Wide Hole it'll be Rixton again!
