Slack caused by bridge piers


Recommended Posts

All,

I believe my most consistent practice with bridge piers is, I never fished the backside if it was sunny. When the back or the left or right side were in the shade I still found them to be just average.

I too always think it is a "fishy" looking environment only to be dissapointed.

Perhaps it was its stash you took? If i lived in OZ i would be out looking for gold ,unfortunately my temperature upper limit is 20c so unless you do something about that i refuse to come down th

Chesters1, Probably the number one reason I could not maintain an interest in fluff chucking was gold. As soon as I would see a few flakes the 'ell with the fish rod and out would come the pan.

Not the fingers of a gold panner lol

We have some in wales and scotland but both to far for me to get to to make it worth while,small amounts here and there in other places.

Surprised with record gold prices more are not looking ,i have 14 grm in Asian gold (generally 22ct but unmarked) but who would you trust sending it by post to be gunned?

You are built taylor made for a winter in Arizona. Sunny - 65 70 f and well suited to searching for nuggets with a detector. In fact, the rage is using detectors that that also hit on iron, but lookin for gold.

I have to tell you there are 10 for every ONE I saw in 1964.  I haven't been back in probably 20 yrs so I really don't know. Still, there are millions of acres that are virgin

All detectors hit on iron the frequency overlaps so if you blank out iron you blank out small gold ,bigger gold appears as foil so if you want gold you dig everything .

Over here our pennies are now clad (iron core with a copper coating) once they rust the give the perfect gold response so if your finding them your not missing gold ,but natural gold is a rare thing so if you want to find gold thats not a ring you dig everything, rings even iron ones give a far different signal to what they are made of so are rarely missed but a lot come up in the ring pull section so you have to dig those aswell!

1 month in one field ,just the rubbish where gold could have been !

Plenty of coins inc 320 round pounds but just one gold earing ,now elaborate over 6 months and the gokd total was 14 grms of 21/22 ct ,time wise i was probably down if i was working!

50 odd silver rings but asian ones are not 925 so pretty worthless ,i give them back who needs a cheap ring with Alah rules or whatever on them

From non existant fish to saphires to gold then coke cans another convoluted AN thread!

Thanks, Gozzer. Yes, helpful, though for the particular bridge I have in mind I don't have a permit to fish from the upstream side of the bridge. But I'll bear it in mind for elsewhere.

Thanks for heads up, Steve, but no, the bridge in question is Clifton Hampden, near Didcot. I've been fishing a short day ticket stretch a few times, though with little success beyond an 8oz roach and a jack.
