31/12 Trent

Ended the year with a couple of fish, makes a change from my recent results. Just a small jack and an angry looking bream but both very welcome.
Water temps up a bit at 5.5 degrees, just nice to be out fishing again after a week of flu...

14/12 Derwent

Just a quick update - blanked again. Fished for an hour and half then fortunately it started raining and without my brolly I had no choice but to go home.

11/12 Trent

Derwent was actually .5 of a degree warmer than the Trent but still not very warm. Ended up on the Trent but with deadbaits a bit too big and weed/ leaves not letting me present them how I wanted, never felt confident. Another blank.

05/12 Derwent

Dryer than Saturday but still cold (obviously). Finally made it back to one of my old haunts and found somewhere decent to park. Probably not the best day to try a new (well not fished for about 8yrs) stretch. Remembered to take the water temperatue - 2.5C, didnt exactly fill me with confidence.

Again no bites to maggot, worm or boilie. At least I gave it a go. Left early, feet cold, footy on tele, warmth...

04/12 Derwent

Fished the same swim as last Saturday, caught 1 less fish, don't think I even had a bite fishing deadbaits, worms and boilie. Started raining about as soon as I sat down. No brolly. A day to forget...
