Individual Final – Rutland Water

Over the last two years the top 10% of anglers from each Airflo Anglian water round have been invited to  participate in the Anglian Water Airflo Individual Final held at Grafham Water. Saturday 19th May saw forty anglers take to the water in what could only be described as perfect fishing conditions, overcast with some light rain.

The boats headed off into the usual haunts such as Hedge end, deep water point and the odd one which split from the pack to the south west corner of the lake.

Many anglers took their 8 fish impressively quick, with the quickest going to Rob Edmunds who landed his 8 before 11am!
