It is not a stocked fish, the river in question is a well kept secret and it will stay that way lol.

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.


Superb specimen, well done. As a relative newcomer, what's 18pt below a klink? Cheers.

Well done on a superb wild broonie. It's a beauty.

But a bigger well done for not revealing an iota of information on it's location. Anyone worth letting in on it wouldn't ask in the first place.

All the best
Billy

Not really that a good fish then, it could be from any corner of the planet, we only have to take your word for it ,new Zealand and other countries have them like that ,the clyde has a few as well ,oh s,,,,t ive let it out the bag :eek:mg::D:D

Are you just naturally dumb or do you need to sit some sort of instructor exam to achieve it ?

It means I fished a size 18 (2mm tungsten bead) pheasant tail nymph as the point fly with a klinkhammer as a dropper (attached New Zealand style). The klinkhammer acts like a bite indicator dipping under when the fish takes the nymph. In this instance there was only about 12 inches between the two flies as the fish was feeding very close to the surface.

Cheers for all the comments guys, was an amazing experience and one I will remember for a long time to come no doubt. Now where is that 7lber?!

Also I noticed a few of you were guessing the weight so I have added it to the original post, not that it matters too much but the guesses were very good!
