A friend of mine send this to me and I must say this is a fantastic char, and it was caught on a fly - a perfect catch - but the best part is that this beautiful fish was released right after the photo was taken - that's the spirit guy's :O)
This huge char was caught by Craig Blackie (holding rod). It weighed over 24 lbs and is estimated to be the largest fly-caught char on record. Both guys in the shot are fish biologists and they specialize in salmonid morphology and taxonomy.
