Hello Fellow Anglers

Just about to move to Long Eaton, between Derby and Nottingham, and would like your advice.
1. I prefer river fishing, (all species), so what's the best club to join, or where are the good day ticket waters?
2. I used to fish Attenborough gravel pits some 40 years ago. Who controls it now?

Any information would be fantastic.

Hi and welcome to AnglersNet. I am not familiar with that area (too far for me to travel) but hopefully someone will be.

Bloody 'ell Waspgrub, I f you remeber it from the 60's, and are still a Junior Member they must sell some amazingly magic beer up there!
I can see the headlines now. 'Fountain of Eternal Youth discovered in Sawley'

I remember John the baliff, special constable I think, from when I fished the Harrington Arms stretch in the 90's .

Now I see someones nicked the island; should have kept him on!!

I think it is leisure sport, members only no day tickets, fishing not as good as it used to be fishes well after a lot of rain as the erawash runs into it and colours it up .
I remember john as well he used to run the heart foundation matches from the harrington arms
