Massive Salmon from the Tay

One of the biggest salmon of the year has been banked on Scotland’s River Tay.

At 33lb 6oz the sea-liced fish came from the famous Cargill beat just north of Perth falling for Lincolnshire angler Hugo Greer’s boat-fished Tomic lure.

“It was a hell of a fight,” 73-year-old Hugo told

“It powered off to the other side of the river before jumping clean out of the water. I thought I’d lost it at that point, but 20 minutes later the ghillie and I were holding it for the cameras. It smashed my previous personal best salmon by over 20lb.”
