Sinking line and lure attarcts new personal best rainbow

The biggest trout of the week at Rutland Water was also a personal best for its captor Richard Cooper, from Empingham, Rutland.

Having spent some time fishing earlier in the day with his boat partner Keith Jones, Richard decided to go back out on his own in search of a ‘big fish’ and was rewarded with his personal best 6lb 2oz rainbow.

Richard took the fish in the main basin on a sinking line with a lure.
