Used to catch quite a few Barbel when trotting for Roach or Chub at the Ferry Field on the Trent, especially when loose feeding hemp. I remember being quite annoyed at the time!!

Aye, I’m going back 20odd years when I lived in Nottingham. It used to be on the Fed ticket but day tickets were issued. If you were in Notts AA & the Fed you could pretty much take your choice in that area. Burton Joyce was excellent too as was A section up past the weir - happy days.....
