Monster Rainbow Trout set to smash the British record.<br />
<br />
Angler Michael Mitchell has caught a record trout that escaped from a fish farm and fed for five years on an endless supply of prey to reach mutant size.<br />
<br />
Michael had been hoping to catch a 10lbs brown trout when he hooked into the monster rainbow specimen which  weighed a mighty 34lbs 12ozs.<br />
<br />
The catch was found to have beaten the previous British record of 33lbs 4ozs held since 2003.<br />
<br />
Michael, 52, caught the huge silver fish during a trip to Loch Earn in Scotland which is stocked with tens of thousands of brown trout.
