Rutland rainbow joy for Rob

Rob Keeber, of Leicester, landed a number of quality fish during a recent day trip to Rutland Water, topped by this cracking 6lb 2oz rainbow.

He found the most success using dry flies in the Manton Bay area of the venue, with bites increasing once the cloud cover arrived.

However, it was a move to the main basin later in the afternoon which saw Rob land his biggest fish.

He fished the slicks around the boils with a Di-5 line and a size 12 black and green variant.

Elsewhere on the fishery, the best brown trout of the week weighing 4lb 8oz was taken by John Machin from Nottingham.
