28/10 Derwent

No joy on my pre-baited spot or with my pre-baited bait and no sign of any carp

However...6 bream to 8lbs to downstream rod

All fish between 5 and 7.30, went home at 8.30

My good turn for the day was to rescue a baby duck, seemed to float happily away...

**** swim, livebaits close in and feeder/ lobworm in the 'main flow'

3 perch about 1lb on the feeder, nothing on the livebait

might be worth trying the worm in deeper water?

11/10 Derwent

Perch and bream session

Just a small pike and a microbream (for the *****) of about 5/6lbs and listened to my footy bet lose to cap a crap weekend for fishing...cue violin music...

Less sure of this areas barbel potential, until it gets cold and wet anyway

The ****** below the *** ******

The rain didnt appear to have made much of a difference to the river level

Theres big bream up here as well...biggest of being 9lb 7oz

Well i think it was the biggest, wish I'd weighed the other to be sure...

Lots of 'bits' to maggot in the middle, just a nusiance jack pike to livebaits

02/10 Derwent & Trent

1/2 hour in my pre-baited swim...felt too shallow and no flow and weedy...looks ok for perch though

Change of venues, same result...ended up fishing the *** swim, probably should have been somewhere upstream
