A MASSIVE 11lb 11oz rainbow was caught by Darren Oram of Watford while boat fishing at the Stoke Dry area of the fishery.

Darren used a Cats Whisker to take his mammoth catch.

Due to much needed rainfall and increased water levels at the fishery, the Leicestershire bank is again open for anglers. The fishery management advise that all bank anglers wade no more than knee height and use a wading staff.
