    And as for experience we regularly see 20+ fish on the Wye confirmed at that weigh after weighing. In 2015 on our club alone the first 5 fish averaged over 22 lbs Ė all weighed and photographed. The smallest was 19.5 lbs, a very rare recorded weight nowadays.

    It is a truly wonderful fish, well done.

    I consulted a scale once when I measured a fish, then I consulted another one and the fish gained nearly two pounds. Quite amazing really considering it had departed an hour since!

    18lbs, 20lbs - who cares?

    Probably best not to measure, weigh, guestimate or hypothesise about weight. Just acknowledge, congratulate and enjoy I reckon.

    Great fish. Out of interest, where is the beat name derived from? Looks more French than Gaelic. I think there's another beat on the Tummel with an unusual name too.

    It isn't really Gaelic.
    More like Auld Scots.
    Maybe a rough translation of The Dour Pool.
    But more likely linked to local landmark?
