Frequently Asked Questions

I struggle to name Swims
When defining a Swim Name you can often use a feature to do this, such as "The Sunken Branch Swim" or "18 Foot Hole Swim" for example.

If you struggle to find a name for a Swim because there is no significant feature then there are alternative approaches to this.

Firstly, it is important to uniquely identify the Swims that you have fished. In this way you can record a Session against the Water and the Swim. You only need to record Swims when you wish to record Session details.

I have considered using a combination of Water Name and Number but when looking at the Lists and Analysis Reports it just didn't make sense. I also considered naming a Swim in relation to another Swim. For example, on one Water I fish there is a Swim that I call 'Thirteen Foot', after it's depth. It's about the deepest Swim I know on the Water so it is easy to remember. I could rename the Swims either side of it as 'Thirteen Foot Minus 1' and 'Thirteen Foot Plus 1' but this wasn't really meaningful either.

When there isn't a distinguishing feature to name a Swim I now name them by their position on the compass with a number. That way 'West Bank 1', 'West Bank 2' and so on are numbered 1 to n down the West Bank from North to South. Where the Bank is sloping at an angle on a Map then I just call it the 'North West Bank' for example or 'South East Bank' or just plump for a 'North' or 'South' say. As long as I understand the rules then I can place the Swim on a digital map or Image and know what I mean or if I am not using Images then in my minds-eye I will know where the Swim is.
