I don’t know what it’s like where you live but in my area we’ve had lots of rain in recent weeks.
You only have to look at the current River Severn level at Bridgnorth to see just how much has fallen in the last day alone.
I think torrential wouldn’t be an exaggeration either.
The graph for the Severn is on a sharp upward curve.
During the night it continued to rain heavily but my plan was to go lure fishing first thing and that’s exactly what I did.
