    Precisely what I was thinking Marty! And the 40lb'er from Caberston.

    Marvellous fish all of them, but this is in a different category. Well done!

    Will this fish fish be retained at the hatchery and stripped later in the year - if anybody knows that information yet ?

    Thanks

    He's been retained in the hatchery tank for resus and DNA testing. I believe it will then be returned to the river.

    In October, they net 50-70 fish to choose the pairs for the hatchery. Everything is DNA tested to ensure no farm genes, and try and keep the small gene pool as diverse as possible. Usually 6 pairs. The others are put back in the river to spawn naturally.

    From what I have seen there;
    1. he is not alone.
    2. He may have a wife of similar proportions.
    3. He may have competition (a lot) bigger than him.

    Thanks - interesting how they do it, just 6 pairs.

    Bigger than him - my biggest at 22lb was enough.

    Hats off to the captor, the second(other than the size)most remarkable achievement is for this fish to be landed in 25 minutes or indeed at all. Fish of this size and bigger are hooked and lost each year on the ry. It's a very intimidating river, getting to grips with fishing for salmon in such fierce weight and pace of water is a huge challenge, even hooking and landing a small 7kg fish is no mean feat!
    Think positive and persevere

    For anyone interested in fishing the Aaroy, which is usually around 1500/day, how about a shot at it for 100 for 2 days. All proceeds going to Norske Lakselver.

    Wow.

    Do you know the size of biggest fish they have netted in recent years?


    Thanks
