Few Hours on Rutland

Back out on Rutland last Friday for a few hours. It seemed like the only place to be on the lake was the dam area. Have to say I’ve not seen fish in these concentrations for many years. It literally was a fish a chuck despit the bright sun and wind gusting to 30mph.


Here is my boat partner with the pick of the bunch, what a beaut, must have been nudging 5lb. 

Best tactics was just stroking back Jelly fritz blobs on a slow glass or the Rio hover line. Must have been the only day when we were pleased to go back in because our arms were aching so much. Can’t see it lasting so get it while you can! 

This is a picture of the blob and hook I was using. The FNF Jelly fritz 10mm Atomic Yellow / Safety Orange on the Fulling Mill barbless heavy weight competition #12. Have to say I didn’t lose a single fish once hooked on this new hook from Fulling Mill despite not having a barb.
