Swim 2 is approx 2 metres deep, There is so much scope in swim 2 you have a lot of water to fish, find the old river bed it is approx 1 ft deeper than the rest with soft silt, Take some pole markers and row them out, fish the markers.
The dutch guys who were fishing swim 2 when we were there did this and had some good fish to 40 plus.
As I told Moth we fished single hook baits and very few freebies crumbled up to attract the fish.
The bait boat was a bonus and will be in swim 2, as there is less disturbance than when you are rowing out to place your baits.
Swim 6 is approx 4-5ft deep and acts like a channel between 1,2&4 to swim 3 and 5, again look for the old river bed.
Dont forget a bait in mid water as a mate of mine was in swim 6 and picked up a 41 common half way across.
Theres a lovely margin mark next to some reeds to the left of swim 6 under the pylons always worth a bait but didnt produce a fish whilst we were there.
It seemed as if they were using swim 6 as a run through to swim 3 so a zig rig might be worth a try to catch an unsuspecting lump.
Please let me know how you all get on as we booked next years trip today.
