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.
The Trent had returned to near normal levels and fortunately only a couple of other people fishing a bit further upstream. And it wasnt raining for a change. Missed a fish early on suspect it was a bream. Then did catch a small bream, my first fish of the river season
Was getting the odd indication fish were about and just as it was getting towards dusk hooked into what I thought was my first barbel of the season. Turns out it wasnt a barbel but a carp of about 10-12lbs.
