Good luck when you do get out :z16
My son is nearly 20 now so I don't have to book school holidays any more, hence having most of April off :z12 so it gets better :z16

Absolute stunner mate! Congratulations.

What was the weight? We now need exact digits, no rounding down!

Might be an idea guys if we start taking a reliable source along to verify........  :X2

I vote we go for a new system.

Small, medium, big, huge and Epic.

Then it can be subjective and it would work like a sliding scale :z16

All these fish are beautiful and they all get returned safely, Thats what really counts :z18

All my trout are 'Epic' Sandy so I'd have to think of a different scale!  :z7

Thats some cracking fish there, but it's not all about weight and size :z8
It's about having a great day on the river and having a good time,enjoying yourself and being in the great outdoors (whatever the elements). The Don is a great river to fish when she feels like giving you a bit of a surprise and she does on a regular occasion ( as can be seen) .  Well done on your PB boys  :z14

Your right it's not, but if we are honest, catching fish of that stamp increases the enjoyment of fishing 10 fold 👍🏻
