I was the one holding that fish and know the weight, as we weighed it. Now, as we all know pictures can be deceptive, so would anyone like to guess the weight, just for a bit of fun?
No cheating by looking on the Upper Caberstone daily reports please.
Just seen this , wish I`d seen it earlier to see if it confirmed the accuracy of the Tweed salmon weights published charts before I knew the weight. However ,checked it out anyway as it is a really good picture for getting an estimate of length ,being straight on and hands clearly visible that can be used as a reasonably close measure. It came in at around 35 ". The charts give the weight at around 16lb which indicates to me that length is a good way of estimating weights in the absence of scales.
