500th Trout for the 2017/18 season..

Recommended Posts

It's taken a while but I finally managed to catch trout No. 500 for the 2017/18 trout season.. Only needing two more to reach the target set before the end of February I caught & released 14 browns on the last day of the month in what turned out to be a great few hours in the river taking my season total to 512 at the end of Feb. I'm still hoping to reach my end of season target of 600 trout.. the season ends at midnight 29th April. Since the start of March I've had three three trips, I've caught & released another 21 trout raising the total to 533.. Here's a few photos from the 28th Feb trip.....
