Do Not Mess With Fish 238,

and you thought fish were fun!

well Eric did when he caught this beauty, on a fly-fishing trip to Iceland last week, He landed a 28-pound salmon on the Vatnsdalsá River, setting the record for reeling in the biggest salmon of the summer, the massive fish measured 42.5 inches, working with Vatnsdalsá guide Sturla Birginsson, Eric had to run over half a mile downriver after hooking the monster, and spent two and a half hours reeling it in, the local fishing association enforces a strict catch-and-release policy on the Vatnsdalsá River, but Eric was able to snap a picture of his record-setting catch before setting it back into the river,

Eric has always liked fishing, but after recovering from drug addiction more than 30 years ago, Gary Brooker of Procol Harum got him hooked on fly-fishing as an alternative, since then, Eric has even designed his tours around the availability of fly-fishing, He's been travelling to Iceland to fish for salmon since 2000, in case you do not recognise him it is Eric Clapton who like myself enjoys fishing.
