12 x 12

Check out the dimensions on this fish. It is about a foot long but the girth is outragous. Caught him on Spinney Mile just at dark.

I've caught 'em like that...

As it appeared that there was either a spine injury, or a malformation of some sort, I quickly released 'em.

As I was a young kid, and impressionable, I listened to some old guy near me - he said that the fish had probably been hiding under a rock, and someone stepped on it, breaking his back. ?????

Anyway, when I caught a couple over several years, I figured he was "out to lunch"!

Fly

It could be that the fish recovered from a broken back at some time. I caught another fish that evening that was built the same way but without such a pronounced hump. Very fat though. They were eating my canadian blood mohair leech.

Great looking fish. Is that a Keeper or did you have to set him back?
