Nedre Rudan, 16th September

Out at Nedre Rudan today, a very good lake for Rainbow trout. Arrived around 08.00 and started float fishing with maggot. After about 10 minutes the float went under and I struck into a small but hard fighting fish. Was please to see it was a bäcköring (brook/brown trout) very beautiful fish weighing in at 12oz (I have new digital scales finally). About 2 hours later I had a very strong bite on float fished prawn and was shocked to find a pike on the end of the line!!! It weighed in at 3lb 4oz. The old guy sitting close to me insisted that fish be killed. He is a member there and they dont want the pike eating the Rainbow trout. Bit of a shame really. About an hour later another good bite and this time a 2lb 7oz Rainbow trout, a very hard fighting fish and good fun on the match rod! There were fish jumping clear out of the water (up to a few feet!) all day which was quite a site. Not really many bites for me but the guys using flies were pulling in loads. A good lake and worth more attention in the future. Our camera is broken so a few pics here from the phone.
