Foremark’s Record Rainbow

Philip Bruce, one of Foremark Reservoir’s regulars, caught more than he’d bargained for during a trip to the water.

Philip was fishing over deep water in the Carvers Arm area when an 11lb 7oz fish snaffled his Cat Booby, fished on a fast-sinking line with a 15ft 6lb leader. The big rainbow, the best from the Derbyshire water since the new management took over back in 2009, powered deep, taking all his fly line and around 20 feet of backing on its first run! The fish was finally netted 20 minutes later after several more powerful runs.
