20lb salmon by Emily
We saw a few fish moving, then Tony decided to fish a little pool where we have had success before. Not many other people fish this little deep pool, but he had no joy. So I thought I would put a heavy tube on that I had been given by a local fisherman a few visits before (it was like a Willie Gun but to his own design, they call it an ‘Admiral Nelson’ the guy who tied it is called Dave Nelson). I was at the deepest part of the pool, when Tony was just about to comment that the river was starting to drop, and he thought the fish might come on the take when BANG I was into what I felt like a nice fish! When landed, it was definitely the biggest Salmon I have ever caught approx 20lb+ 37inch in length!!!
