Hi John, Just remember the river is carrying extra water at present so, youll probably need 6 to 8 ounce to hold. If you need any info on our stretch at Besthorpe just let me know. Good luck pal. ?

Collingham is day ticket, however that has been difficult going recently for some of us. If you get into things, you will open up some water and chances, by getting a Newark and district piscatorial federation card. Have details for them if you wish to go down that route. Good luck.

If you decide to go and don't catch, don't be put off. The Trent can be a bit naughty at times and doesn't give up it's fish easily (depending on stretch). Perseverance will pay off...eventually.

Bobs Island is also day ticket.
