Steve Phipps fishing as a guest of Trevor Hyde was expecting chub or barbel so was surprised when he caught an unusual stray in the form of a rainbow trout on swimfeeder and worm bait. The fish was not weighed but was estimated to be about 2lb and was in absolutely super condition.
Where it came from is anybody’s guess but it was fin perfect and not the usual fin battered stocky common in stocked lakes and ponds.
Steve came all the way down from Market Rasen in Lincolnshire to fish the Wye for a few days with his brother Graham and met up with Trevor whom he had not seen for 25 years!
