Another Season Gets Underway
Sunday morning along with my regular fishing partner Lee Swords we headed off to the tidal Trent. This year we would be fishing the opposite bank overlooking the famous Collingham weir the water’s a bit deeper and slower on this side and we don’t have to suffer from having to fish along side a bunch of knob heads, we can now watch them from the other bank. Anyway I managed about eight small Chub a nice Perch (8oz) and a few little roach and Lee took a small Barbel(4LB)and a Bream all mine came on maggot. The funny thing was when we arrived there were only a couple of anglers fishing the weir pegs and by 4pm the place was empty but by 6pm the night shift had turned up you know the type three of them wearing trainers jogging bottoms and hoodies tooled up with Dragon carp gear and a Tesco pop up tent and not forgetting the 24 pack of Stella. A little later on four more turned up pushing the biggest carp barrow I’ve ever seen and you guessed it all seven of them fished in peg one and two.
