We don't have a single hi-res pic of a Cornish river for the 'English WW' guidebook...anyone have any, please?

I'm not allowed a camera when I visit the Tamar.

Hi Mark,

we got a few images of the Camel, Fowey and Lynher back in November. Not really that many of high quality, some on a Go Pro.
Have a look here: http://3bsports.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/ ... n-x-3.html
If they look like they are any use let me know, there are a few more of the Fowey (trainstation section) and some of the Lynher on the Go Pro. I will be able to get hold of them.

Cheers - if you could select your favourite 2-3 and email them ASAP, I'd be very grateful.

I noted your Lynher comments - I haven't paddled or even been near the river since 2002 and can't recall a single thing about it - is there any massive error or omission in the current EWW guide? Also - gained the impression that you were underwhelmed by the Camel?

Seems the same phenomena is prevelant in the South ;)
A well known fact that despite nearly every modern kayaker having a waterproof camera or go pro non of them appear to be able to take photoraphs of anything except the usual honey pot rapids the same as everyone else.
You need to entice Poke down for a while :)
