Latest News and Recent Catches From the World of Fishing

Fly fishing nymphs on Pitsford Reservoir

Nice rainbow trout

    Seeing as the weather is so awful, here’s a story I’ve had saved for a while… It was late spring in 2012 and Bob (Church) had fished in a friendly match at Pitsford earlier that week, boating seven large rainbows.

Pike and zander fishing at Grafham Water

Bob Church Zander

Fly fishing for GTs in Christmas Island

Christmas Island GT on fly

If this were not enough, being a member of the jack family (which also includes the giant trevally/GT), the ferocity of its fight is legendary. It was […]
