Default 46.5lb Gaula salmon (2011 season)

The biggest salmon of the 2011 season on the whole of the River Gaula was caught on a small tube-fly last June. At 46.5lb and 129cm long it was a true Norwegian monster and the fish of a lifetime for its captor who was fishing the Norwegian Flyfishers Club water.

Arve Nilsen was fishing with his friend Yngve Landro at 7pm on the club’s Beat B1 one evening. First of all Yngwe had a fish of 23lb from the pool.

Meanwhile Arve patiently re-tied his leader using strong, 0.53mm line and waded into the head of the pool. After a few casts he had “an enormous take” and so started a half-hour fight that was to take him half a kilometre downstream into Renna pool where he landed the fish.

News about the salmon -which was fresh and in superb condition - soon spread and fellow rods gathered to see the monster and photographs were taken.

The fish was taken and spent the remainder of last season in a chest freezer where NFC rods gazed in awe on the size of the fish, which will be set up.
