Ross AC member Jon Daniels will remember this day for a long time when he landed a personal best salmon of 30.5lb from Clubs Weirend fishery. The fish, fresh from the sea, came to Jon’s current favourite lure, the single hook flying C in black and silver. Jon was alone when he hooked the monster, which measured over a metre in length, he was casting upstream into some likely water when the fish took on the second or third cast. He said that the fish took 1 hour and 50 minutes to bring to the net and was witnessed by his angling buddy who happened to arrive on the other side of the Wye and so was unable to help land the fish. Jon was still shaking when he rang me with the news. It is a personal best for Jon and as far as I know a record for the Club. Jon weighed the fish in the net and took a quick photo, which he said did not do the cracking fish any justice, before returning it to the River where it swam away none the worse for being caught.
