Gorgeous photos: glorius fish. Any estimates on the weight?

Congratulations!

I've no notion of it's actual size, but I think it just shattered that "magical" 20 pound mark the Steelheaders are looking for. I'm 23'' from fingertip to shoulder joint and that guy doesn't even come close to coming around the belly of that one.

Ann, get some waders on that sport and tell him not to lift the heavy ones out of the water. It'd be nice if he left some slime on her for the spawn.

I'm always fine letting the guide handle fish like that and peeking my head in for the shot or just getting one of the fish. It's about the fish and not the hero.

Really nice Ann. Save a couple for us, will see you next weekend. BTW it looks like Charlie finally learned to handle his two hander:hihi:

Wilson,
Sorry to have offended you with the photo.
Guiding is not always easy, a first time fish and we do our best to
keep them in the water. However, we are there to please the angler and do our best to show them the correct way and the why? of it all......
(it's his fish...can't do anything about it!)

I will, however, be more careful posting, in the future. Thank You.




Muckle Salmon,

Both Charlie and Brian released a fish this morning (Y4 -Y6)

Drive safely...........

saw some biggies at the bridge :roll:

I am amazed at the shape of the fish. Tiny head (even for a hen) and, large, robust body. The food must have been very rich in the north Atlantic these past couple of years. Plenty of fat on the fish to carry her through to Autumn spawning.

Hope this bodes well for the year's run on the Gaspe.

For a nasty moment I thought you were descibing Ann, then I realised she was so much better looking.

Hi Malcolm, Getting a little frisky in your old age;) eh! You have been pretty quiet for a while. Probabally didn't want to rub it in while we were sitting waiting for our season to get going. How about filling us in on what appears to be a pretty strong season in the homeland.

Scotland is having one of the best seasons for a good while.
Spey Report

Unofficial figures obtained by the Fishery Board have indicated that the Catch on the Spey until the middle of May was a little short of 2000 fish of which more than two thirds were returned. When the catch figures are obtained for the period to the end of June an accurate figue will also be gathered for the catch to the end of April. In 2004 this figure was around a thousand fish with 2005 being approximately 850. The average in the 15 years before 2004 was around six hundred. The 2006 figure will certainly confirm the upward trend. and may well be higher than the two proceeding years.

A feature of this season has been the continuing low water temperatures and this has tended to slow the ascent of the fish which has benefited the beats in the lower half of the river. However warmer temperatures are ensuring that fish are reaching the higher beats and pushing into the tributaries. Many of the people that spend much of their time on the river have commented on the strength of the smolt run this spring and this augers well for the future and demonstrates the health of the system

Thanks for the update Malcolm, hope this holds for the season as I am hoping to get over in September. If you are talking to Mr. Chalmers you might ask him to hold on to some of his whisky for me. Have to run as I have 10 days fishing starting tomorrow with an 18 hr. drive at 5:00 am. Thanks again .
