Default Swim 3

Picture of a swim below. This is the only information you have. Imagine you've been blind folded and lead to this spot on an unknown river. You're looking downstream.




How would you fish this swim, where would you put loose feed, where would you cast?

Let's see how this one goes?

12L does it for me

Screams stick and pin for me. Mid-river cast from where the photo was taken and keep the feed trickling in. Bounce a bit of spam down as the light fades.

6K for me, looks like a shelf that would be fed on in confidence. Bit of finesse required though.

2P for me. Never could cast well when I'm blindfolded.

Water looks quite clear and not too deep. Might be cover under the far bank bushes. I would trickle a few flakes of bread in the near margin, and if no sign of minnows, I would try a light link ledger with two maggots on a size 14 hook aimed at 9t.
Knowing my luck it would get snaffled up by a small roach, but that's fishing for you !
