Sunday saw our forum members Dan Probert (Whitby Angling Supplies) and Miff head over to Lockwood Beck for a spot of fly fishing for rainbow trout. Dan is a regular sea angler and only takes the fresh water option when the conditions are wrong for his favorite type of fishing.
Miff is also a keen Sea Angler and only recently turned his attentions to fresh water fishing for trout under the guidance of young Dan.
Well its often said that certain anglers have what is known as the lucky Gene, and this certainly seems to be the case for Miff. After only four weeks of Fly Fishing he landed his personal best Rainbow trout of 18lb 04oz, which is also a new reservoir record for Lockwood Beck in North Yorkshire.
