Default Wind

hi all. I was chatting to an old bloke the other day about fishing on the trent and he mentioned that if the wind was blowing up river it knocked the fish right of the feed! This was a new one on me and i was wondering if anyone else had any thoughts on the matter

I well remember witnessing a mate of mine catch a number of big chub including a PB on the Throop in the 80,s. ( Ernie Leah had put him the right swim mind you) The upstream gale force wind was creating enormous 'sea horses' and I just wanted to retire to the pub!
He was ledgering cheese on the far bank, and that day proved to be his best out of a 5 day stint,... he did lose his brolly though!

I presume that's because it would normally be a easterly wind on the Trent

Depends which bit your fishing, on the tidal an upstream wind would be from the North so probably not a good direction

More to do with air presure. Really.

And presure below 1000mb is normally better

A strong wind in any direction is a well known killer on the Somerset levels for all species. But that's more down to the peaty soil being churned up and increasing the acidity in the water, which completely turns the fish off the feed. Even tiddlers refuse to bite in such conditions.
