  1. I was caught out today by the Thames being more 'up and coloured' than I had expected. I thought I had done my research and it would be OK, but I got it wrong. I had just taken bread and liquidised bread plus worms. What to do? The peg I had planned to fish was under-water, and the flow there was much too strong. I found a big eddy, about 40 yards long, just below Abingdon bridge and fished it for a bit half way along with flake, but found even the back flow was too strong.

  3.

Much better than the monotonous Carp programmes, as you say, though I would have preferred a bit more on the actual fishing! John
