Hi mate, I assume the Iron man is marking the deeper water. How deep is it and is there a "sweet spot" there?

Hi Guys , Myself & whelkie took a trip to the 'Iron man' today just to give it a go and find out what is occuring, still a little bit slow but it will pick up I'm sure over the next few weeks of that I'm sure .

how deep is it ???????...........at H/w approx 20 ' , sweet spots ??????........pick your own ,thats not being clever it is just up to you it varies all the time, although up by the Tilda plant it is sometimes storming.

Hi mate. I was just interested if your tactic was to cover the shallower area or the deeper gulley further out past the iron man. I was over wildspace country park just after Christmas and thought it had possibilities but it doesnt often get a mention on the forum.

CHECK THIS WEB-SITE OUT, all the history
of the ironman, I find it quite sad yet inspiring at the same time, it is truly a tranquil location, magical even!!!!!!!!!!!........... it has to experienced at close hand to appreciate the beauty/ rawness of it

No seriously it's not too bad at all, although I do admit sometimes, on occasions it gets a little 'Chivvy' what with the East wind blowing down the river but I've never noticed it being 'Chavvy', my lips get a little 'Chappy' but I cure that with a trip to my local 'Chippy'and at the end of the day I'm a reet 'appy Chipper, Chappy'..................aahhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
