BUSY BANK HOL­I­DAY

I ar­rived at a very busy day-ticket lake on a bank Öúèà`>fifi ‹iiéiò` Ãú wò` what I ex­pected; only a few spare pegs were left on the lake. So, a walk around èúúéàò} vú¿ √à}ò√ úv w√Ö ‹>√ out of the ques­tion. Luck­ily, I man­aged to get a spot where a new wind was blow­ing di­rectly into where I was go­ing Ãú w√Ö∞ ú‹ ÃÖi è>éi bed is just silt, not many depth vari­a­tions and very few snags or un­der­wa­ter fea­tures. So, with­out the aid of my Deeper, I `iVà`i` Ãú w√Ö >à {x fifi>¿`√∞
