Hi mate,

I'm from Stoke and also joining BM this coming season.

I do a lot of fishing on the Dove, from trotting for grayling to barbel bashing down Tutbury way and once you start fishing The Dove it gets under your skin like no other river. Not an easy river to fish but a nice challenge.

Don't dismiss the Trent in urban Stoke...lots of chub, lots of trout believe it or not.

Tight lines mate!

I think they might charge £3 a day by the canoe club mate.

I haven't fished scropton yet despite having a Derby Railway card for a few seasons.

Dove everytime, however, I'd echo the comments above, it is highly addictive and gets under your skin :rolleyes:

I'd never considered the Trent in Stoke on Trent. Any particular stretches recommended?
Also, interested in the “free” stretch in Stone. Do you mean it’s free as in cash wise or free of fish :eek:
