Fish of the Month January Entry - Monster Brownie!

John Gallacher was spinning for Pike at Hillend Loch, Caldercruix when he hooked into what he thought was a sizeable esox. You can imagine his surprise when he caught sight of this 17lb Brown Trout after a few minutes! The fish was caught on a Rapala lure and only 10lb line. It was quickly weighed, photographed and safely returned to the loch.
