The Der­went on form for spec­i­mens

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

THIS pro­lific stretch of the Der­went on the edge of Derby is a big-fish haven, with barbel to 17lb, chub to over 6lb, tench, bream, dace, roach, spec­i­men perch and some huge pike.

Late sum­mer go­ing into au­tumn is a great time to try both static and rov­ing tac­tics here, us­ing bomb and PVA bags or rolling meat for the barbel and chub.

Do not dis­count the float, though, as a Chub­ber, Avon or stick float can work won­ders for a mix of species. CON­TACT: Nathans of Derby, 01332 515353 PRICES: £5 from Nathans, Earl of Har­ring­ton’s AC

This stretch is renowned for spec­i­men fish.
