6lb over-wintered Brown Trout from Great Springs, Petworth

This website, I hate the term ‘blog’, contains my trout fishing diary. When I was young I kept a fishing diary but I threw it away. I wish I had kept it. Every time I go trout fishing I will update my diary with photos and a short story about the day. I have been fly fishing for over 40 years and for the last three seasons I have been a member of the Leconfield Fly Fishing Club. Therefore most of my trout fishing is on the river Rother and the Petworth Estate’s lakes. If you want to know more about the club please click on the link below.


I might include the occasional entry about pubs, food, wine and fishing tackle. In fact, anything that is loosely connected with trout fishing.

If you want to comment on my diary please send me an email to nrainton@gmail.com. I will respond.

There are no adverts or pop-ups on here and I only include links to other sites that are clean.
