Big October

Fresh Brown and Rainbow trout stocked for the autumn season. Richard Bolton delivered these Norfolk grown fish to Thornwood, in fantastic condition as ever and hyped up with oxygen from the transport tank. Photographer: Chris K Jones.

It is a tricky job to get them from the tank to the lake with this weight of fish, all the while wriggling and trying to leap out of the net. They need to be counted into lake one as some of the delivery will go into the stock net. Lake 2 is bit easier as the whole lot go straight in through a tube. Should be well settled in by now and ready for your flies!
