It was an interesting catch…! I stopped by the river after a slow morning on the lake, walked up to this pool which is about 20 minutes from the car, beautiful sunny day, still and clear with not another person seen. Fished for 5-10 minutes then…
…spotted this huge brown lying deep opposite me, tried a few drifts from below but could not get the nymphs down so moved above him slightly, I saw his mouth go right at the end of the drift and BANG! The next 10 minutes was up and down the pool and a dogged tug-of-war in the current.
My best trout to date, beating previous bests of about 1.5lb! An absolutely magnificent old jack in great condition, not a mice eater nor artificially pellet-fed canal dweller… just a river run lake fish, top of his domain and released to give someone else the pleasure of catching him. Will be etched in my memory for some time.
Not great video sorry – I would have paid to have someone else to film for me on this fish!
