    Another mighty Tay spring salmon caught and released, 38lbs Glendelvine Beat

    The Tay continues to prove itself as the river for big fish this season!

    The Tay Foundation reported the capture and release of another big Tay salmon yesterday (27th April). The fish was hooked on a floating red devon by Andrew McAdam on his first ever day's salmon fishing.

    Andrew was fishing with ghillie Steven McIrvine on the Glendelvine water at Murthly - the same area where Georgina Ballantine's famous UK record was landed.

    The mighty fish was measured prior to its release. With a length of 117cm and a girth of 62.5cm, it has been estimated at 38lbs.

    It was an incredible day for Andrew. Not only did he land the fish of a lifetime during a salmon fishing debut to remember, but he also caught a 14lber. In fact, these two fish were hooked in three casts!!

    This fantastic capture comes only weeks after Bob White's 35lber, and over the last few weeks a number of fish in the 25lb - 32lb class have been landed. It's fantastic news for the river as a whole, as these multi-sea Winter fish just keep on coming this season.
