This pic was taken while i was fishing the "bar swim" on Longfield (fox pool ) i was minding my own buiseness , when two anglers" Ian Booker" and" Nod"(never did know his real name ) came swimming through my swim after a afternoon session in the Feathers in wraysbury , Ian can be seen in the water about 30yds out he was diving down to try to find a spot where fish had been caught on in the past and thats Nod casting to it with my rod , who was i to stop two drunk legends helping me out ...photo must have been taken around 1988/9 ..
Note the cardinal 55 reel

Looks like the logs to me, to be fair though, at that time of year the logs and the reeds look similar.
One year, our rota had the first week, there were a good few down, i got a bad draw, second from last. Earlier when walking around, i saw a few fish in front of the Gravelly, the Logs and the Reeds. Also a few in front of the Roach.

Didn't see much in the North bay though, they were along the canal, and round into the channel.

So, the canal is sewn up apart from the Logs, and Reagans is left in the North bay. Bit of a dilema, as when fish showed in the North bay, often they weren't having it, and when you didn't see them, some said that was the time to fish it. Certainly was always like that for me.

So, Logs where i'd seen some but, a lot of lines out, or a nice quiet one in the North bay? I took the Logs, and i think it was Nigel Bryant who was last, and went in Reagans. Oh well, the social looked promising.
I was actually first off the mark with a 15lb stocky, a Savay carp is a Savay carp right?

Hour later, i'm away again, 9lb common, well at least the bait was good Bruce Ashby iin the Roach, he's off the mark with a 28lb mirror. Then i think Magoo Roger Hawkins has an upper twenty, somebody, might have been Mark Lawson has a 30 out of the Sluices.

I have another, 15lb mirror, i'm secretly getting a bit worried now. Over the next few days, Bruce is canning the Roach, think he'd had severn now? I'm having a cup of tea, left rod close in is away, this feels better, it was, an 18lb common

To make matters worse, in the morning, i walk back to the car park, Nigel in Reagans has had a 31 and a 27, you should of gone in here he says

That same afternoon, i had another chance, this was definitley more like it, not wishful thinking, this was a more "usual" Savay carp. I saw it roll a couple of rod lengths out, lovely i'm thinking to myself, when the lead flew over my shoulder.
I was properly pissed off now, and as there were a few swims vacant, i was going to move for my last three nights but, there were still fish showing in front of me. So i decided one more night.

Four in the morning, and i'm away again, 11lb common. I rarely get the hump when fishing, especially at Savay but, i was so fed up. Maybe if i'd never fished it before, or i'd never caught from there before, it wouldn't have been so bad? But, i'd had enough, a couple of hours later i packed up. I think it was Pete, or John Harry, said i don't think anybody's ever done that before here, five carp out, all under 20? Thing is, later in the season i repeated it, i was in Maylins, and i think i had 8 fish in two days, all under 20?

What was weird was in between these two sessions, i'd had bigger fish, and i wasn't the only one using this particular bait? It, luckily never happened again, well i never caught another under 20.

So, although, i liked the Logs, it was unkind to me that week.

Go ahead, I think you're allowed off topic in this thread, just don't mention parking in disabled bays, speeding or rule breakers

My personal best moment in fishing is catching a 26lb mirror from The Gravelly in 89 aged 16 on a day ticket

No prizes for guessing this swim!

Think your right secret. The bush to the right is the old little bonfire swim I reckon,which became swallowed up by the reeds swim.To your left would be the gravelly.
I was fishing the gravelly one winter and noticed literally two bubbles appear in the logs next door.
I caught a few from that spot over the following winter thanks to that single clue.😎
