Proper rain eh?? Rivers that flood??
Have you seen the pics of the Penk (sammy's stretch for MADRAS members) that i took after one days rain.
The pics show the surrounding fields underwater & as it stands at the moment the large 6 bar gate by the entrance (about 8ft above the river) has its bottom 2 bars under water 
I love fishing flooded rivers (especially the severn) it makes it all the more challenging 
bloody nurverners all a bunch of moanin jessies
Just cos i ain't postin, it don't mean i ain't watchin
