46lb salmon banked

Whatever fishing you’re into it’s hard not to be impressed by this immaculate 46lb 8oz salmon banked by Norwegian angler Arve Nilsen.

Landed during a visit to the beautiful Guala River in central Norway, Arve had almost lost all hope of seeing a fish on the bank after already having lost four fish during a week on a beat controlled by the Norwegian Flyfishers Club.

But it all came good on the last day when he hooked the specimen that he had to follow 500 metres downstream just to keep in contact.

The angler from Bergen fooled the fish which measured an impressive 129 cm in length with a girth of 63 cm with a tube fly.
