Magnus Fagerström from Bergsjö on the east coast of Sweden hooked the fish while fly-fishing in the Ljungan river.

“I had a massive bite and it felt like I’d hooked a small car.” He told the local media.

 
What followed was a forty minute battle ending up with the Swede holding a 127-centimetre salmon in his arms.

 
“It felt great, but it was more of a ‘bonus’ fish as we were actually fishing for sea trout,” Fagerström said afterwards.

In accordance with the regulations the fish was returned alive to the river but with scales only recording to 10kg the weight had to be estimated from the length. Whatever the precise weight it was certainly a massive fish, as the photographs clearly show.
