Stop looking at your computers & get yourself down to Draycote Water, where the fishing is off the charts. My good pal, former English Loch-style champion Martin Webster and I wrestled out well over 80 fish yesterday using Airflo Fast Glass lines & just about anything we cared to tie on. Lots of fish over 4 pounds - many grown-on - & some even bigger. My best was 5lb 14ounces. Absolutely worn out! Many thanks to Craig Barr & his team for providing mobs of top-quality fish that will make Draycote a sensational place to go trout fishing all summer long.

Here's a shot of one of 14 fish I had at Elinor in a morning session last week - another one of the UK's top trout waters. Ed Foster runs a fantastic fishery & the Elinor fish are always looking up for food, so make sure you pack your dries & emergers. This fish was the biggest of the season so far & weighed 13lb 8 ounces - it went back to fight another day. Airflo Slow Glass & one of Craig Barr's olive crunchers contributed to its downfall. Many thanks to Andy Lane for getting it in focus ( for once... )

  1. That's a cracking fish from Elinor, Matt! Nice to see the Airflo fly line getting you some fish too!
