25 lbs Springer From The Trap Today

Here's Vittorio Spasciani who booked a last minute rod on Newtyle this morning & within an hour was playing a tank of a fish in 'The Trap' which he expertly hooked on a copper bodied Willie Gunn fly. Sadly I was four hundred yards upstream when Vittorio was playing his fish and only noticed that he had landed a fish when I saw it's huge girth from that distance. Vittorio took a photo of it before quickly releasing the specimen but the photo came out quite blurred although easily still recognisable as a seriously heavy set & girthy Tay beauty. I'll post the photo on this blog when he emails it to me. Very well done Vittorio and full marks for releasing such a lovely big Tay specimen.

Well done. Sounds like a mighty fish. Good to see the monsters are hanging around Newtyle this season.

Best, David Heyman
