They can give you a fair fight caught on light equipment and great fun as a fly fisherman, but to find them in a huge size like this one, is not an everyday event, simply because it is a new world record!!
In the austrian river Steinfeld on november 25, this beauty was caught by Adriano Garhantini from Austria. The weight were 4 pounds, 12 ounces, caught on a nymph.
The old record were from Finland's Latasenojoki River, caught in June 2008 - 3 pounds, 15 ounces.
Right now the paperwork for Mr. Garhantini's proud catch is being reviewed by the International Game Fish Association's record committee.
Huge congratulations with this amazing catch
