Well with the river season now closed until June and the pursuit of my quarry now suspended it has not stopped me from going down to the river. Instead of being armed with a rod and line I am now armed with a camera. Just because you can not fish does not mean that you can not walk the river to find spots and marks for when the season re opens.
I parked in my local country park where there is the first access to the river and started walking along the bank clambering through the bushes and long grass to firstly find new access points and then to spend time looking at each spot. Climbing trees and jumping banks, with each potential spot photographed to take another look when I get home.
I am looking now only for fish activity but also deeper holes, shallows, and slack water.
This also gives me a chance to see any unseen snags that would not normally be observed until it is too late.
Here is a selection of the Photos taken
