Pioneer Lake 20/8/2012

On the 20th of August I woke up at 6:45am and realised that I had slept in for 20 minutes so I grabbed my gear and rushed over to the Pioneer Lake and set my rods out, I used 2 floats, both weighted with a red hook and a worm on each, 45 minutes later I saw my float start moving then it bobbed up and down then it took off across the surface then is stopped and went back under again.

Ten seconds later I struck and got this 42cm 2.1 pound rainbow trout, it was my smallest trout in 2 years but it put up the best fight I have ever had from a rainbow trout.
