Nice teaser! I have had a day today with a similar situation, lots of leaves washed up where I usually fish just on the slack side of the crease so I fished it on the main flow side of the crease instead. Not to say I don't usually fish in the flow, but I was more in the flow than usual today.

Nice one Danny, as someone is very new to river fishing that is helpful. I am part way through reading 'How To Read Water: Clues & Patterns from Puddles to the Sea by Tristan Gooley SBN-13 : 978-1473615205 Very interesting read for anyone trying to learn watercraft.

This is my 'usual catching area' (that's what the text says) hopefully the pic is the right size as I had to resize it.

That area is where all the food washes up, but also where all the leaves wash up, so I have had to fish just to the upper left of it, just at the bottom of the white water.

Nothing better than finding a nice glide that you just know will produce. Once you find one its only ever a matter of time until you feel the tugging and thumping of a roach or the writhing and twisting of a dace!

Nice one Danny. Did your kids teach you that ? 😆 Where are they anyway ? I thought we may have seen your daughter showing a pike or three the canal towpath as the temperature drops. Take care fella and stay safe. 👍
