Fishing the Handsacre section of the Trent this morning Sunday 18th February 2018 ,dead baiting a whole sardine aiming for a pike, this stunning wild brown trout weighing in at 5lb 6oz took the bait and went crazy, finally landed him, weighed, photographed and rested. Then safely returned. What a fish!!! David Van der Hollyoak (via BAA Facebook page)
