  • River Trent

    What a week end, lots of Barbel, roach, perch,dace, an EEL and a real wild RIVER CARP caught by Fishingposts.Com members, brilliant.
    Robbo was kind enough to let me hitch a ride with him for the meeting.

    Before the fishing began there was a presentation of a cheque for thre Polio Fellowship.
    £4OO WAS RAISED, here's Mark and John with the cheque

    As usual we had a great time with the members, lots of laughs, drink, food and fish, some more cash was raised for Charity by
    Fishingposts.Com members.
    The river was is fine condition, nice flow to it,and a nice colour. Someof us put our bivvies on the top of the field, the rest of the contingent put the bivvies up on the lower pegs.
    Although we did see one another LoL.

    Another thankyou goes out to Ian for yet another fantastic BBQ, very tastey as ever

    Here's some of the barbel caught over another fantastic weekend with our members. Three of our members from Ireland made a safe trip over to be with us. Colin, Rondon16 and Greg
    However the news goes to Greg and Robbo for their first River Trent Barbel each

    Nice report and photo's Andy.
    It's always nice to see a few Barbel being banked from the stretch, and the PAD club continuing with their Fundraising for worthy causes.
    I'm sure the local publican will have been sorry to see you all go.

        Thanks Peter. long time no see
        The first presentation was for Mark and Johns 24 hour fish in.

        It looks like there will be about £800+ from the week end. It was touch and go if the event went ahead because the field was flooded for a week. The flood water was up to the Church in the lane, Mark and John went down to see the condition, when they got to the lane fish were topping in the water .
        But the Gods were good to us, field dry as a bone and not a single mud hole on the field LoL.
        The river was in fine fettle
