John Richardson caught this 17lb 2oz cracker on a mayfly on pretty much the first hatch of the year.

Joes first ever fish, a beautiful 10lb trout caught in bait pond 1.

"My wife said 'Mind you don't bring any fish home'...
This is going home with me!"

'Thank you for the pics and especially the video recordings your son took it was much more than we expected - Joe is simply over the moon he re-lived it all again while watching the videos he was so excited'
Margaret (Joes wife).

Paul hooks a beauty!

Paul holds a lovely 12lb 6oz rainbow caught on a Damsel hothead fly he taught himself to tie only a few weeks ago after watching a fly tying YouTube video (below). No wonder he looks chuffed to bits in the photo.

'I had a lovely days fishing yesterday, my wife could not believe the size of the trout, she's used to seeing Salmon. Mind you it's the biggest trout I've seen or had too!'

Paul is very happy with the disabled facilities at Carbeth and hopes to bring other disabled anglers up here for a spot of fishing when the weather's a bit better. Whatever the weather though you're always guaranteed a warm welcome here.

Bath time!

This 9 1/2 lb beast cut an impressive wave to the centre of the pond then turned and headed for the bank, alarming another angler.

"I thought Jings! It's going to jump clean out the water"

Too big for the sink, this monster was filleted in the bath.

Daniel runs the bath as dad sharpens the Kitchen Devil.
