Draycote Water's biggest brown trout of the season falls for Boobie Minkie.
At an impressive 12lb 4oz, this specimen is the biggest brown trout to come off Draycote Water this season.
Landed by Bromsgrove-based angler John Hoskins, the hen fish fell for a size 10 Boobie Minkie presented on a short leader using a slow glass intermediate line.
John was fishing the jetty area of the midlands venue when the big brown hit, giving him one hell of a scrap.
“It was a real thrill to catch such a big and beautiful fish,” John told Total Flyfisher. “It’s a fish of a lifetime.”
