20lb rainbow lured on a floating line set-up

Rainbow trout don’t come much bigger than this sensational 20lb 7oz giant, taken by Paul Bailey during a visit to Tree Meadow Trout Fishery, near St Ives in Cornwall.

Holiday-maker Paul, who hails from Stoke-on-Trent, tempted his new personal best fish on a Hare’s Ear pattern, which he presented on a 6lb leader and floating line set-up.
