In Urban Banx 7.5, we find out what Alan has been up to over the past few months in late 2014 and 2015 …and some of the weird, wonderful but always watery places he has been on his travels.

In less than ideal conditions, with unbowed enthusiasm and no small measure of skill Alan goes about making the most of any available time to explore the urban waterways he loves the most, both here and across the channel.

As with all of Alan’s carp fishing adventures, he never chooses the easy option, but the rewards are worth it!

As a bonus feature, we also catch up with Alfie Russell – the former Angler’s Mail Specimen Cup champion – as he tries his luck on a new park lake in ‘The Big Smoke’.
