Lives in his converted camper on the water. Guess he thinks like me about the old days on the place. 120,000+ fish stocked in those days, and you would catch many overwintered fish. Now its 50,000 (last time I asked) and the fish all get caught on stocking days, so bloody sad I really miss the wonderful almost wild trout fishing at Rutland.
Had another session today, ended up on same peg as it was sheltered from the wind. Kept it simple with one line down the track for punch and the other at 11m with worm see if I could bag a stripey. Fished my usual punch attack. It was a bit harder today and had to work at it but ended up with 77 fish but stamp was quite small compared to last time. Nothing on the worm line but only went over every now and again. Another enjoyable day for 50p of bait
