Default December 2017 Caption Competition - sponsored by Allen Fly Fishing

Click the image to open in full size.

So for the last caption competition of the year we went big - literally! What caption would you put to this funny photo?

As always, the entry we judge the best after the end of the month wins a prize voucher from Allen Fly Fishing to spend online in their store.

Entry closes at midnight on the 31st December - good luck!

Paul

Who thinks we are going to believe that photo with a fish that big the boat would sink. Anyway what sort of fish is it supposed to be? A whale trout?

I understand the reason for stocking bigger fish, but the cormorants surely aren't that big!

Moments later it did sink, Alban, but not before gobbling down Mr Sunburst Yellow.

Matching the hatch had proved its worth again - a cormorant pattern on a 10/0 proving the killing combination for this beauty.

Have it on me

This stocking policy at Rutland has now got to a ridiculous stage. They are so big that they have got to stock them one at a time!
