The Irwell on steroids

The secret to the Irwell...worms! nothing beats simplicity.

Chub around 5lb

Another silver brownie at 3lb, the colour difference in these trout are amazing.

Yet another chub around 5lb

What a surprise this fish was, an 18lb Irwell common caught on a 3lb bottom, expertly netted by The Meddy Man. It was a true powerhouse made of solid muscle unlike its fat commercial brothers. This river will never stop surprising me!


  1. Having viewed the pics, I'm now even more impressed. Fantastic fish, that look in perfect condition

  2. Well done m8 that's some catch on a 3 lb bottom anywhere let alone the Irwell.
