Carl Malpass' 9lb rainbow, the biggest a huge haul.
Lake district venues see buzzers fool large number of trout despite conditions.
Despite the recent scorching weather Cumbria’s Esthwaite water has seen some superb catches taken over the past week.
Anglers have been taking huge numbers of fish in sessions when the trout have been feeding, with buzzers proving to be the winning pattern.
Topping the list was a session had by England youth star Carl Malpass alongside boat partner Tom Nelson.
The pair, both from County Durham, fished buzzers on floating lines to catch tens of trout to the point where they lost count. Amongst the many fish was also the biggest rainbow of the week, a 9lb 12oz specimen that fell to Carl’s rod.
Elsewhere angler John Morgan Parker fished buzzers on a washing line set up to record 28 trout from a boat, while visiting anglers from North Wales, John and Rhian Robinson also employed buzzers along with sedges on floating lines to take a total of 62 rainbows and browns over three days.
Local rods and season ticket anglers have also done well with Richard Maddox latching into 23 fish, John Gardner landed 18 trout and Jim Miller 17 trout to the boat fishing cats whiskers and damsels.
