RECORD BROWN TROUT CAUGHT AND RETURNED!
The new Jersey Brown Trout record of 8lb 2oz was caught and safely returned to Queens Valley lower on the 28th Aug 2011 by JFAA member Steve Harris.
The magnificent specimen was caught on a DRY FLY! So give it a go! This goes to show that the Browns are growing on, due to the food available to them. So can we please keep returning these beautiful Brownies for them to continue to grow. Jersey Water have added a further 1200 fish to the Queens Valley lower on the 8th and 9th of September, so get out there!
Well done Steve - Tight lines everybody
Ross Bannerman, JFAA
