Worth Getting Wet For?

Yesterday it rained all day but that didn’t dampen Gavin McCourt’s spirit, he kept on fishing and landed what I think is the largest wild brown trout for a long, long time! (1907 Rev Fulleul 12lb 12ozs, 1959 his son Major Filleul 5lb 4ozs)

A stunning fish, sight fishing and taken on an emerging Mayfly pattern in the pouring rain. It wasn’t weighed but it is estimated to be well over 4lb!!

Gavin said “waiting 9 years to get in the club was well worth it” and I don’t think he has stopped smiling yet!

Where did he catch it, all I know it was somewhere on the Club’s water!!
