As long as I can position myself out of sight then I would be fishing close in under my feet anyway if the wind was in my face; as any food on the surface would naturally end up there anyway when the wind was coming towards me.

Some of my best days fishing on the surface have been with me either laying flat on my stomach or sitting well back from the edge behind cover and fishing with the wind coming towards me.

On occasion I have even fished with my line coming directly upwards off the bait below my rod tip with no line laying on the surface at all (dapping).

Thanks BB for a good summary of how wind affects carp

 

Also see my comments on venue 2 in the earlier thread "Winding Down"

As Dick Walker once said "How much intelligence, for the love of Mike, does an angler need to realise that floating food will go where the wind blows it ?"

Regarding the information about the wind i have come to realise Millenials dont have a sense of consequence, you see them on youtube falling foul of obvious pitfalls any 'normal' adult will predict so everything has to be explained and most likely every time it's published because when you live on a phone there is no need to remember anything, its a wonder some remember to breathe !

I guess this a sign of the times and many of us will look back at the golden years fondly. I'm surprised any magazine is surviving at the moment. I can't remember the last time I went out and bought one. For many years, they've become an impulse, one-off type affair for many of us. It's sad, really. Magazines and comics defined my youth!

I actually bought AT today, AM had sold out, miserly thin offering for £2.30, tempted by 'roach' on the front cover, well over a year since I last bought AT. I really don't know why I bothered. This afternoon I also picked up a hardly read copy of John Watson's A Pikers Progress for a mere fiver, now that is value, especially when compared with AT! Was a time that a daily visit to WH Smith was a must, now it's the book shelves in my local charity shops!

😀 Mine too. I used to buy SA, AT and AM and I've won prizes from all of them but I find it more interesting and informative to now read online news groups. I can't remember when I last bought a magazine.

I've met him !   A minor club official with delusions of grandeur.    Didn't have any I.D. on him but demanded to see my club card and licence.  I told him to go climb a tree.

Re the salties...

The only other occasion where wildlife stopped me fishing was on the Oykel    Fly fishing for Salmon , wading a rapid, above a deep pool, and was attacked by midges.   I was not being bitten much, but two eyes full of midges meant I couldn.t see - in a fast current in midstream. Chucking handfuls of river water into my eyes was all I could do and the midges came back as soon as I stopped the irrigation.   Was damn glad to get out of the water

I think my closest call with danger was a grass snake swimming in front of me. 😀
