My name is Matt Kemp, I hope you enjoy reading my fishing diary. Just some
short accounts of fishing on my local rivers (usually the Derbyshire Derwent or the Trent). I try to keep this diary updated as often as possible, and I do go fishing quite often. If its not been updated it probably means I've not been fishing.
16th June, 1st day of the season, conditions looked ideal for barbel fishing with the river up and coloured. Unfortunately it turned it out to be a big dissapointment, despite fishing a swim thats usually very good in those conditions failed to even register a bite.
