I thought that the record Salmon might be bigger, which was caught by a female, but that was 64...

That is a smashing fish!

Difference is in Spain there are a lot of fish and in my book it's purely down to luck who catches them, but to catch a fish like that in UK waters is a great achievement.

Nice one Bev!

As far as I am aware the heaviest freshwater fish caught by a female was the salmon weighing 64Lb caught by miss georgina ballantyne in 1922 on the river Tay.
But I could be wrong.

Miss Ballantyne did catch a salmon of 64lb but not sure if it was the tay or tweed (only know this cause the lady has the same surname as me(no relation as i am aware)
