Grayling were commonplace between Averham and Winthorpe, barbel thrived all along the Trent, bream competed with the huge shoals of chub for the anglers' bait, and numerous shoals of roach ensured that every visit to the dazzling clean river was a day to remember.
Some of today's Trent specialists are convinced that the river holds a barbel that will soon smash the current record and they are backed by some impressive double-figure specimens which have been landed during the past five years.
Ruthless pollution ensured that the River Trent began to deteriorate quickly from this time and the majestic salmon was driven from the Trent by 1900, and although some fantastic catches of coarse fish continued to be reported for a number of years, clearly pollution was beginning to ravage the river.
