Rutland Water has produced its biggest brown trout of the season – this magnificent 9lb 10oz fish which fell to the rod of Dave Murray.Dave and fishing pal Richard Hearth deliberated on where to fish before deciding to target fry feeders in the venue’s North Arm.

Both anglers fished Humungus boobies on di 3 lines whilst drifting.  Dave, of Chislehurst, Kent, caught the superb 9lb 10½ brown trout around the weedbeds in the North Arm between Armley Wood and North Arm Three Trees.  Richard, from Oakham, landed a cracking 6lb 15oz rainbow off the Finches Bank. Brown trout season ends on 29 October.  Any Browns caught after this date must be returned safely to the water immediately.
