We have news that the River Idle, on the Whitehouse section just above stream from Ordsall Road bridge has been fishing extremely well for specimen chub.

Retford rod Darren Bousted landed a pair weighing 3lb 14oz and an outstanding one of 5lb 1oz just over the magic 5lb barrier.

Darren tempted these fine fish on ledgered halibut pellet and sweetcorn presented on a hair rig, and we are informed that as the weed dies down the river will come in o fine Autumn form.

Unfortunatly this length can not be fished on a day ticket but season tickets are available priced at £20 and £15 for concessions.
