Going with the flow in the Fens

Rain, rain and more rain. Instead of its usual semi-stagnant summer state, the Gaywood River is bustling along by Bawsey Ruin. Between various jobs in the Fens, I look in on a drain or two and they're all up and running too.

The relief channels that flow into the proper Relief Channel from the Nar look more like trout streams, with bur reed snaking in the current.

The Pulver, a drain I've never fished is brim full, with bream bubbling around the silent pumping station.

I check out a few more places. On the way back to civilisation, I wonder why I haven't seen a single soul fishing on any of them.
