Tangles - I Love 'em

No not those horrid things that happen to your leader just when it is most inconvenient for you and the light is going.

I mean lovely tangles like this one here.  Such a lot is happening thanks to this example.  There is a scour forming that will create a deep hole for a big fish to live in and near.  There is a feed lane round the back of it, but how the Devil to fish it is yet to be worked out.  Trout will take station here.  Birds will nest on it.  It will maybe make a new piece of land one day - unless of course it is washed away in a brisk winter flood some dark and windy night.  In which case it will still leave a lovely deep scour in the gravel where once the water was only a few inches deep...
