It is not a stocked fish, the river in question is a well kept secret and it will stay that way lol.****! That's a beast alright!
I'm assuming your river is stocked???
I have tried the dry over him a couple of times before and he was having none of it, hung a size 18 PT below a klink and he slammed it first time.Beautiful fish. On a dry?
Very good guess, he was 6lbs 2oz.I would say 6-7 pounds?
