Rutland Water is arguably the premier trout fishing venue in the United Kingdom. The massive 3100 acre fishery has been a mecca amongst exponents of fly fishing for generations and regularly plays host to competitions and other events.
The fishery records at Rutland Water are unique with a modest 14lb 4oz for Rainbow Trout and surpassed by a massive 14lb 12 oz for the biggest Brown Trout ever caught at Rutland Water. This venue is often busy during the open season from April to December. Despite the vast size insect life is plentiful and popular flies include Buzzer, Sedge, Daddies, Hawthorn and other imitative patterns. The depth of this fishery means that Boobies, Orange Blobs and Dabblers are also very effective.
