A crap day at pots - thanks environment agency

On wednesday the Exe was at a level which would usually make flowerpots sweet, however the environment agency had kindly drained the river downstream of pots by opening the flood gate at trews weir. This made the pool level at pots lower which increased the height of the drop making it more vertical and turning the washout into part of the hole.

I decided to give it a go anyway, it was hard work getting out because as well as not having the usual washout the back flow of the stopper was carrying river-right, towards the pit. My tactics were do one move and then try and get out.
