There is no question that ladies have figured prominently in the catching of large Atlantic salmon. Indeed, all seasoned salmon anglers are aware that a lady holds the British record for a rod-caught salmon at 64 pounds.

All these catches and more feature in this incomplete roundup of large salmon landed by the ladies.
