Against all odds I was lucky enough to manage a couple of fish, including this 3lb Blue Trout taken in open water on a black lure. These blue trout really seem to fight like crazy, and this one quickly had me testing my rod as it fought desperately to go under the boat. After some rod bending persuasion the trout turned and came back out of the front to scrap a little more before being gratefully recieved in my net. I cannot say today was enjoyable, in fact it proved hard work and the best part was the relief of getting off the water out of the wind. On days like this you'll do well to remember every dog has his day, and Carsington is a Top Class Reservoir when the weather permits it to be.
