28lb spring on fly for Danny Fullerton

Danny Fullerton had a day to remember with us on Saturday at Upper Taymount.  Setting of at 8.55am to spend the morning at "Stank End with his 15.9 guideline le cie fly rod. I urged Danny not to walk past the "Sharks Fin",as many Anglers do!! Taking this advice on board Danny started with a "short line" from the wee green croy and on his 3rd cast had a solid pull.lifting his rod, Danny a salmon fisher of great experience instantly new he had hooked something a bit bigger than the norm!! After a titanic battle that went on for over an hour he was rewarded with this "Magnificent"42inch salmon. The 28lb springer took 1" aluminium "Blue Angel"tied by Danny himself which is basically a black and yellow with a blue body on an IPS 7,10 foot sink tip "Congratulations Danny" I'm sure everyone who looks at this picture shall agree "An Awesome salmon to be caught on the flee".
