I caught this cracking salmon from the River Don on Saturday morning. It took a #9 Cascade and fought like a tiger! It had me into the backing before I finally managed to draw it into the net. It measured 31" long and was estimated at 11lb. It had no sea lice present but it couldn't have been in the river long at all. Hopefully this will be the start of a good run of fish entering the river now. I managed to get some scales that were left in the net from the fish and I have given them to the bailiffs for reading. I will hopefully hear back soon and find out more about this fish.
