Stunning looking Fish. Great to see and amazing weigh gain on that river over past 10 years.

I digress, but imagine all fish when they reach that weight (or 15lb+, depending on the river) attain the 'known fish' status. I wonder if the phenomena of fewer and bigger fish has precipitated that concept?
Very good point, whilst these big fish are fabulous, I wonder what is the balance of smaller males and females?
