If we forget the mythical Dever Springs rainbow trout and we push aside the maggot caught Perthshire trout (although an amazing catch) this week saw an unforgettable event at Pennine.....a 30lb 3oz "fly caught" rainbow trout. To my recollection only the forth fish to hit and past the 30lb mark with witnesses and photos. This fish has taken 7 years to grow on and countless hours of hand feeding to push it over the magical barrier, many other fish we have had sadly died before I had the confidence in achieving the weight. So the captor, well he's a star up here and a well know angler all over the UK as he's probably caught over a 100 doubles up and down the country.....Mr George Waters from Bolton, he caught the fish on a 3# rod which is an achievement in its self with a home tied stalking bug. It's still not all over for really big stuff yet though I've still a few more notable fish over the 26lb mark to come in the next couple of months, one of is looking like it may hit the magical thirty again...something no fishery has ever done!
