31/12 Derwent

River was a bit higher than expected but water temp was a possitive 8 degrees...only downer was realising I'd left my headtorch at home. One barbel about 7lb at 5:15 but hard work unhooking/ rebaiting in the dark and called it a day at 6. Would have been worth staying a bit later but happy to have caught.

28/12 Trent

Met up with Mick for an overdue session we had planned for a while. Our first choice venue was still underwater but there was a couple of fishable pegs nearby. This stetch wasnt kind to me last season so hadnt fished it at all this time round. It proved to be tough going, with one fish caught between 3 of us in the end. Fortunately it was me that caught it, a zander of about 7lb. Not a bad evening to be out though, quite mild just wish a few more fish had shown.

26/12 Trent & Mersey Canal

Couldnt get to the Trent due to the flooding, so settled for the canal close to the river. Thought there might be a few fish sheltering from the high water, but not a bite. Theres usually a bit of a drop to the water level...
