Rutland Water’s Rainbows were served to the Queen last week. 30 Rainbow trout, caught at Rutland Water during a match organised by John Horsey, were the main ingredients of a delicious starter of Flaked Tian of Rutland Water Trout served on an oat cake biscuit crumb and finished with crème fraiche, soused cucumber and a saffron mayonnaise.

The lunch followed the Maundy Thursday service attended by the Queen and Prince Philip at Leicester Cathedral.

 

Rutland Water is in impressive form with plenty of fish being caught and an increasing number of overwintered fish including Browns.

 

The best Rainbow of the week was a superb 5lb 11oz specimen caught by season ticket holder Wal Holynski of Leicester. This was Wal’s best ever Rainbow. There were plenty of 3-4lb Rainbows recorded last week with many responding to buzzer tactics, either on floating lines or midge tip. Barry Sobey, Graham Hayward, Ted Cornish, Roger Gill and Cameron Neil all reported Browns in the 5-6lb range and many others around 3-4lb. The biggest fish of the week was a Brown of 7lb 8oz caught by Nigel Savage. Nigel, who is familiar to many as one of Rutland’s rangers, commented that there are good numbers of fish in this weight range and bigger!

There have been some amazing buzzer hatches and the fish are generally feeding hard on these. One or two fish are on snails, whilst some of the bigger specimens landed have been feeding on roach fry and bullheads. Anglers have been full of praise for the quality of the fish (including the stock fish) all are in superb condition and feeding hard.

 

Best Rainbow 5lb 11oz taken by Wal Holynski.

Best Brown 7lb 8oz taken by Nigel Savage.
