Radek Vyhlidal who struck into a massive ferox trout.
After a long and difficult fight, the magnificent fish was finally netted, and after being measured and photographed, quickly released again. The huge ferrox trout was a monstrous 93 cm long, probably well over 20 lbs (9 kg), with the priority being to release it safely.

Inland Fisheries Ireland Should Protect Ireland's Wild Brown Trout

A website has been setup www.savethebrowntrout.com There has been calls for Inland Fisheries Ireland to focus their gaze on the nationwide protection of Ireland's Wild Brown Trout in Irish rivers and lakes.

Irish Salmon and Sea Trout have laws in place to protect them however Brown Trout have no state laws that offer them protection putting them at risk of killing and over fishing during fishing competitions.

A facebook group has been setup to encourage Irish Anglers to photograph their catch and safely release the brown trout so populations can recover. Please join the facebook group Save The Brown Trout at https://www.facebook.com/groups/savethebrowntrout
