Example text

If it wants to run, just. . ’ The fish had jumped clear of the water and John’s split-second impression was that it could easily have been a big sea trout from some South American river, so deep and silver was its body. He stifled his panic and remembered Gendall’s advice about playing New Zealand trout: ‘keep everything smooth; no jerky movements, or you’ll lose them for sure’. Forty hyperactive, exhausting minutes later, and 300 yards downstream from where the trout had taken, John managed to encourage it into the shallows.

It didn’t bite him because its teeth were already set on mangling the ripped-off toe-end of the skipper’s rubber footwear. Barry managed to push the eel away and scramble clear. At last, the skipper, toes poking through the hole in his boot, landed a blow on the conger’s head with the baseball bat, momentarily stunning the fish. Making good use of his temporary advantage, he grabbed a longhandled bait-cutting blade and cut through the monofilament just above the trace. He then attempted to kick the eel with his one good boot towards the open hatch into the fish hold.

Victor’s heart was threatening to smash through his shirt by now, and he had an unbelievable adrenalin rush through his belly with the shock of that initial run. He knew this was something out of the ordinary, because he had never seen a trout behave like this on Lake Vyrnwy; it was a hugely different feeling. A ridiculously long time seemed to pass before the fish slowed down, but it finally stopped and enabled Victor frantically to wind the little brass reel to retrieve some line. The trout came in quite easily to start with and Victor thought he had it beaten, but then it must have sensed the shallow water again and it took off on another long run.
