Arni Baldursson has posted this photograph on Facebook of his superb salmon from Iceland's River Sela that is estimated to be over 30lbs and looking at the scale of the fish next to the rod I don't think we would disagree!

This was what Arni had to say about the catch....

"I just landed this morning a 109 cm Salmon from the Sela river in Iceland, very heavy and thick fish , a true monster , definately over 30 pounds. This is the record fish ever taken on the Sela river , it was taken on the pool Skipahylur , fly black hitch tube , hook number 14 , tippet 12 pounds and 7 weight LOOP evotec single handed 9.6 foot, light tackle and it took me 1 and half hour to battle the fish , very fine leader and small hook, justa fetr landing this one I landed three more from Skipahylur .. but a bit smaller :-) , what a day ! Arni"
