Howdy Ya'll,
Just in case any of ye are playboating over the coming days.
The spot on the weir in by the wall has quite an amount of fishing line stuck in it, tangled around trees and such. I got well and truly wrapped in it last night and had no river knife to cut it so its still there. Some major effort to untangle myself, luckily no hooks found me.

If you are there over the next few days, be wary of it. I'll bring a knife with me next day i'm out to cut it.

Some cracking waves on the river Smile All flush eventually, so no worries with them.

just a word of warning...fishing mono can and will cut you to the bone if you pull it with your bare hands ...or even through neo. gloves....so a line cutter is very handy ...

If the trees are not gone after this water we may need to help them move with a chainsaw bounce

Fishing line gone.
Weir was epic this evening Smile

On the subject of removing trees
It should be thought through properly, removal of branches and very loose trees certainly, but some of the bigger trees are very solidly stuck in place, i generally make sure of this due to a fear of them shifting while playboating behind them.
The trees provide easy exits at high water levels in an otherwise almost river wide hole, not very safe.
As a bonus, they are also creating a number of different play features allowing very very good practice. I'd go so far as to say, some of these are held better in place than some of the wedges that have gone in to create these easy exits and play features.
For the river runners, the trees are also creating different types of holes, waves and eddy lines, invaluable practice for those days on the river, and learning the finer points of whatever craft you're in.
