Cracking PBs both of you Northantslad and Yuccaman- well done!
I was also on the Trent yesterday - riverfest qualifier at Trent Lock (actually used 20 pegs each at trent Lock , below the pipe bridge at Shardlow and another on the Pride of Derby water above Sawley.
I drew on the Pride water, which hadn't been match fished in years apparently - but the organiser said that he's left out the pegs around the Derwent mouth as that would blitz the section. Well all that happened is that the last peg above chucked his feeder down to it and blitzed the match with 10kg .... Doh!
I caught a few roach and perch - but never got anything lined up.
I must say that the Pride of Derby complex is spotless - mown lawns and tree planting ... looks like you need a 3 rod pod to qualify to fish on the lakes there though
We decided to visit collingham wier field on Tuesday as the river yet again was running low and gin clear and also having a blank the following week on our usual stretch but on arrival was met by a couple of anglers that had fished all night and not had a bite , even the lads on the golden pegs weren't very happy so we decided an about turn and go to Fiskerton ,one car in car park so plenty of room so off we went down to the river and decided to fish . A hard day followed my mate blanked but I did manage three nice barbel two of them doubles and was over the moon to finally crack my long standing pb with a beautiful fish of 14lbs 6ozs, what a lump haven't come down yet
