Unless there is more than one Appleford I would say that is more middle Thames, or perhaps upper middle. Swimfeeder works well on all the river, but there is always some good float fishing along those reaches. But it's so long since I've fished the river up that way I can't give any detail. Daceace should be able to help there I think.

It's not a stretch I'm familiar with but until the weather broke the Thames was fishing well for roach on seed baits - hemp and tares. If there's some colour it can be worth fishing for bream on the Thames legering; I like to use a feeder with liquidised bread in the feeder and flake on the hook. Some good perch in the river so worth a go with worms though the crayfish can be a problem. Fish it and find out!
