Yes you could say that. I’m sure you’ll agree that this some feat on any river as imo these big ones are so aloof but you’ve certainly taken advantage of the conditions imo as previous seasons have seen these fish run for the hills.Good day yesterday, we thrashed Germany then I went out and caught this sea trout. It wasn't weighed but it was definitely bigger than the weighed 9.5lb fish I posted a couple of weeks back so I'm calling it at a conservative 10lb. I knew from the off when I hooked it that it was some fish. When me and my fishing buddy saw it in the net we both just swore out loud.

As a side note, I'm on quite a roll...the last 3 sea trout I've hooked, I've landed them all and they have been 11lb and 9.5lb (both weighed) and this at a conservative 10lb. So my last 3 sea trout are averaging over 10lb. I'm thinking of retiring
Only on our lovely little River Wear....
Take a bow sir
