31/12 Trent

River has risen another foot or so since yesterday, opted to fish the same swim though

Decided it was too boiley after the 1st hour and a half and moved to the next one up which looked a bit calmer.

Normal service resumed, just caught a few sticks and other assorted debris...

30/12 Trent

Perch fishing trip cancelled due to an excess of cold dirty water in the rivers, zander fishing on the Trent instead

2 zander, about 3lbs and 5lbs

Nice to actually catch fish for a change

26/12 Derwent

Reeled in something about 12 inches across, flat and round.

It was black in colour and had a hole in the middle, I was wondering if it could be a record?

Not really...blanked again

21/12 Derwent

Not been out for a while so thought I'd put in an appearance...

Feel much better for 1 1/2 hours of sitting in the cold

A fish would have been a nice bonus though

11/12 Derwent

Spent 1/2 an hour catching leaves at my 1st choice of venue before heading elsewhere. Then deceided to go somewhere else...

One small barbel @ 17:15, at least it ends my run of blanks

Had put this area down as one to fish for barbel later on in the season, glad I got round to it eventually and that it does hold at least one barbel. Will be giving another go at some point...

Return to leaf city and a stretch of river that actually holds some barbel...

One barbel 10lb 10oz @ 18:20, maybe one other bite that stole me meat

Fell over twice...
