If it's where we mentioned Steve, 4 to 6oz will be fine in those areas. Might be worth a few 8ozs if it gets a little water on. When it floods the pace doesn't increase as much as the Middle Trent. Any other Qs, give me a pm.

Many moons ago,fishing rivers like the Yorkshire Ouse ,which comes up a bit quick at times ,you could be a bit unprepared ,so if 4oz was'nt holding add another 2oz on etc,found it no problem.
