Well done and thanks for posting this, it's encouraging and inspiring. The Hodder is a beautiful river. I've walked most of it and at times have been anxious of and encountered pretty extreme territorial attitudes though it has always been more than worth it anyway. I would utterly love to canoe down it sometime and would actually like to do it in summer low water though realise it would involve a lot of portage. I'm completely new to canoeing and know and love the Hodder through fishing it so have appreciation of the conflicts of wishes of the beings that frequent it. I don't want to spoil anyone's day by disturbing a salmon pool or spooking some trout but though I realise my passage is likely to cause some momentary inconvenience to humans and none humans alike no lasting harm is done and anyone not willing to share the earth with others in passing might learn something from the passage of a paddler or two. We all have a right to this kind of beauty and rivers belong to everyone and no-one.
Hi has any one got an idea of what level it needs to be on the guage at hodder place to be high enough to run please?
Any more to add on the Hodder? hoping to run it before new year, are the fishermen still as angry? Is there an ideal level? Any hints or tips? Cheers
