Salmon Fishing Scotland Big Spring Salmon on the Tay April 2011.

Salmon Fishing Scotland Big Spring Salmon on the Tay April 2011.

The mighty Tay in Perthshire, Scotland has produced another monster Atlantic Salmon this year. The Tay is famous for very big salmon and especially in the Murthly area where the 64 pounds record salmon was caught in back in the early 1920's by Georgina Ballantine. Today on the same beat but under the Glendelvine Fishings a fantastic sea liced 38 pounds salmon was landed and then carefully released back to the river.
Andrew McAdam on his first ever days salmon fishing landed this Tay beauty on a floating Devon in the Garth pool at the top of the beat with the assistance of Scottish Ghillie Steven McIrvine who is pictured with the whopper. The salmon measured 117cm long and had a girth of 62.5 cm which equates to 38 pounds.

This is Andrew with another salmon he caught also which weighed 14 pounds. Believe it or not Andrew had the two spring salmon in 3 casts! Not bad for a first day. These are the things anglers all over the world dream of. Well done Andrew. Well done the mighty Tay for producing such valuable salmon.

Fantastic fish! Well Done! Judging by the damage to the pelvic fins it has survived a seal attack as well,i wonder how many of these big fish get nailed by big bull seals out at sea? Thank goodness it was caught spinning.Someone has got to get a 40lber this year!Best Wishes
