Ray’s personal best

SEASON ticket holder Ray Linnett managed to catch his personal best Brown trout from Pitsford Water’s Pines bank. Ray uses deep lures to target larger trout in Pitsford. His fish weighed 8lb.

With gin clear water and a strong north easterly wind it was a challenging week. Anglers have been arriving later in the day to tempt the fish.

This approach worked for Dave Davis, of Guilsborough, who fished on Bank Holiday Monday. Dave took a 9lb 12oz fish from the deep of Brixworth Bay.
