More details http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/ireland/2012/0528/1224316807694.html

 

 

Mr Jones, who works as a freelance photographer with the British angling magazine Trout Fisherman, was trolling using a “roach deadbait” when he hooked the fish.

 

“When I hooked it first, I knew instantly it was big fish. It was like hooking a car, the line just streamed off the reel.”

 

“Using this type of big bait, you're either going to get nothing or a big fish.”

 

The 46-year-old, from the Rhondda Valley in South Wales, played the fish for over an hour before he managed to land it.

Would be great to bend into something like that, but as he said, if you use them tactic's, if it goes, it's got to be big. :toast:

They say that after a fish that size has fought like that they rarely survive if you put them back. What a fish....I bet Burkes Bar will see some custom when that is on the wall !!

He said it flicked once, once landed then died, not that it matters as he was going to chap it anyway
