Big fish at Birse yesterday in River Dee / Mail from Ken Reid

Photo Lars Terkildsen

Just received an mms message with photo from Lars Terkildsen of a really big Springer caught by Marko Hannonen from Finland yesterday.
He caught this super 30lb Springer at Birse yesterday on the fly. (potential Malloch trophy candidate)
The length was 1 metre 10 cms which would be 30 lbs according to our data and length to weight conversion charts.
It was one of a 3 fish catch on a small plastic sunray Marko enjoyed at Birse-his colleague also took a fish at Birse yesterday.
Haven written about big fish being seen recently it's great to hear of one being landed.
