I finally got my first fly fishing for coarse fish,not on the river as hoped,i took jerryrum and skateboard daves advice. got some beaded nymphs, started with a red squirmyworm. started 5pm today. after 20mins on a slow retrieve noticed the line draw up and my 1st small roach,next cast felt the line tight and hooked what was obviously a skimmer bream. but turned out to be a specimin crisp bag.took a photo but the bag came out blurred! fished till 6'40pm can't wait till next time
Yes no. 4 i caught it at the top narrow swim,usually catch nice bream 2lb + on bread april time there,used to be good for tench not had one for a few seasons now. will try cutting the worm shorter,next time. somebody told me no.2 has some big perch.Good work!
I think from the photo that might be teardrops you are fishing on? If so, try using the same method on the top end (by the little foot bridge) and I reckon you'll pick up a few Perch.

Any that are heaving with coarse fish ideally - always on the look out for new venues. ;-)
Have you seen this thread I posted in River Reports about Nottingham?
