Mick , Puts me in mind of my large wild brown trout i caught on the small river gala that runs in to the TWEED , It was 7 lb 5 o/z

i caught it 9 years ago & i know i will never catch a better 1 , So i know exactly how you feel, Unlike you my fish ended up on the dinner plate.

I sent a scale sample to the tweed foundation who confirmed it was a Brown Trout , they told me it was at least 12 years old , but may of been many years older as the scales of these large fish are hard to read.

The foundation also told me it was the oldest Brown trout ( Wild ) scales they had Ever read

 

However your fish is a belter a real cracker , Well done Mick ,Now sit back and enjoy the memories it is a day i Promise you will Never forget .

 

Ps , My trout had 6 smaller trout inside that it had eaten

So it felt like 7fish on 1 hook

a few smaller ones wouldnt have done for dinner ? 

 

seems like such a waste to dispatch an old fish for the dinner plate.

It was badly bleeding , When the foundation read the scales they said the scales showed the fish was in it's last year of life , How they could tell that was beyond me.

I always return my fish , but if they are dying due to deep hooking then i wont waste the fish.
