    Anyone interested in a week end session on the Trent for a crack at old boris?

    Any ideas on stretches and accomodation welcome!

    Warren you can bunk at my gaff if you want but I live in sheffield,my mother in law lives in nottingham but she is 80, the stretches are no problem its just getting something day ticket or free to suit most tastes and with easy drinking/sleeping facilities near by.

    For me that has to be priest house/kings mill near Donnington.

    Beautiful bit of river with decent barbel and chub all through.

    Plus the beer at the priest house is cock-on and the breakfast is second to none (but expensive)

    we could also do the clifton bridge length, but it isnt very pretty

    thrumpton has a 40 ticket

    clifton grove is like Iraq and the car parking is dodgy

    shardlow is good but on a ticket

    We could do the tidal but that isnt my strong pointfor venues

    I could be interested?
    More info would be helpful, as it's a long time since I've been on the Trent. Mid 80s I think? Not many barbel in those days on the lengths I fished.

    Count me in Swordsy, its been a long time since I was on the Trent. I Used to fish it a lot in the 80's and early 90's but I've not been for over ten years. In fact I had my first ever Barbel from the Trent at Besthorpe if I remeber rightly.......all of 4oz it was, probably a bit bigger now though.

    ****** off an find another river there aint no Barbel here lmao!! Swordys says hes got a bivvy, you lot can kip with him and he can cook your bloody breakfast, hes a chef rofl!! Does this post suggest that some good Barbel are being caught on the Trent? If this is so I assure you its purely coincidental lmao!!!

    Does the move from Coarse Fishing to General Fishing indicate that something other than Chub and Barbel might be on the menu? Barbel fishing to be undertaken purely in a forlorn investigative mode you understand Don!
