Hi all, I only started fishing in June 2003 and class myself as a total beginner even though I have caught some fair sized fish. I usually fish at Weston Moat or Coopers arms. Next year I am joining Pride of Derby as they have some wicked ponds etc.
Anyone who lives in DERBY who knows where I can go river fishing without having club membership, can you please help as I would really like to try and catch a Barbel or a Chub before Xmas. Thanx

I have recently moved from Derby and know that most of the rivers are owned by clubs. I would suggest a visit to the Angling Centre on Nightingale rd or Nathans of Derby in Mackworth (sorry don't know the address but look in any Match Fishing type magazine and there will be an advert) both of which i'm sure will be able to help.

Hi Andy, I moved from Derby a few years ago so I don't know how upto date my info will be, but I suggest you try the stretch on the Derwent at Borrowash called "Chub Alley" When I last fished there day tickets were available from the tackle shop in Borrowash, try asking there for details. Not sure about barble but as the name suggests you should catch a few chub there. You will also find that the Pride ticket has some good stretches on the Derwent and Dove which should help for the barble.

Derbyshire: best beer, best cheese, best puddings.
Same as above Andy. There's no Trent round here on a day ticket but the Derwent through Earl of Harrington is now ?2.00 per day.

You can fish from the bridge at borrowash up to just north of the town centre somewhere.

Loads of river to try there.

Pride has got some nice waters but not on day tickets.

I Fish the Weston Moat Fishery Often, It has undergone a few changes over the last couple of years and the new owner seems to have really gotten their act together, there is a good head of carp, I myself have caught one at 28lbs and there is one in the lake at 37.5 lbs (2006)

They have a new website and things are starting to really look good for the place

Regarding Weston Moat Fishery, I was there this summer I got there on a Sat about lunch time, the lake was booked out to a match but the Old chap who was working there said it would finish by 2pm and to hang around as it fishes good after a match because of all of the bait going in and it getting quiet afterwards things liven up late afternoon early evening. Well i am glad a waited I booked on for the night, and went and had a pint in a local pub, I got all set up on an area they call the point, I had a screaming run as I was setting up, it was a small but absolutelly perfect condition Common it was about 7Lbs. It was quiet then untill dusk but then the night from hell started, I was running left right and centre needless to say I had 9 fish through the night, usually just as I was nodding off/forum/smilies/smile_smiley.gifthe largest was an Common deep bodied and a lovelly bronze to it. The next day to Bailiff came around i showed him the picture and he informed me that it was a fish they call Davina. All in all I had a cracking night, a really pleasent little place, and not pressured either, if you go and have a night like I did make sure you had a good night sleep before hand
