Trout Fisherman (UK) - - News & Views -

ADULT an­glers at Kent’s Spring Hill Trout Wa­ters had to swal­low their pride re­cently and ask a cou­ple of young­sters what their se­cret was, when James Con­stan­tine and Ed­die Ben­ton turned in this re­mark­able dou­ble act. That’s more than 13lb of trout you’re look­ing at, af­ter the boys, both ju­nior mem­bers of Tun­bridge Wells Fly Fish­ing So­ci­ety, struck gold while fish­ing along­side each other. Twenty min­utes in, James, 14, caught a 6lb 4oz brown trout which Ed­die had to help land, af­ter an epic bat­tle. It was then 10-year-old Ed­die’s turn, a 15-minute scrap re­sult­ing in a su­perb 7lb rain­bow. Both fish were caught on an or­ange, rub­ber-legged Daddy.
