Nah the two blokes are just hobbits, it is just another 20 pounder:giggle:

Thanks for posting Marc, great fish. I love the note in the corner, they don't even bother to say what it weighed. They must have known so as to say it was the largest on record at the time. Are the records no longer available?

I believe most of the large salmon caught in Canada are large females, certainly the big, early running fish are majority female.

I didn't know that Heero, you learn something new every day. Other places around the world including UK and Europe the largest fish tend to be male. Granted though the large early fish are usually female just the biggest of the big, the leviathans, tend to be male.
