Rutland Water fished exceptionally well with 30 of 42 anglers catching their bag limit of 8. An impressive rod average of 7.10 per angler really shows how well Rutland is fishing at the moment.
The quickest bag of the day went to Ashley Davies, taking all of his 8 fish by 11:10 am! Only to be pipped by England youth angler, Matt Holroyd with bigger fish for first place. Fish are deep at Rutland with most fishing coming to boobies, nymphs or lures fished as deep as possible. Anglers who used the Airflo Sixth Sense Competitor lines, either in the di8/di7, or di7/di5 versions and achieved maximum depth seemed to outnumber their boat partners.
Best Fish went to David Crichlow of Iain Barr Fly Fishing which weighed an impressive 5lb 3 3/4oz.
