Wow nice fish! According to my salmometer (for Atlantic salmon), that fish should weigh between 18 and 19 pounds.

Thanks! Took about 15-20 minutes. I was using an 8wt Scott Switch rod with Abel Spey reel.....the brute took a single egg, but my guess is in warmer water (45+ instead of 33) he would have ran for a mile!

I just received this image from one of our customers. I had to share it as the colors are great. I wish it was me holding steel for the camera, but knowing it was landed with one of leaders comes in a strong second.
