Eric Clapton does it again. Last year, the rock & roll legend landed a 108 centimeter, 28-pound Atlantic salmon in Iceland, the biggest of the summer. As an encore, this summer Clapton reeled in a chrome-bright Atlantic measured at 105 centimeters and weighing 25 pounds.
Clapton’s guide, Sturla Birgisson, who also guided him into the beast last year, says that the salmon was a beautiful silver male and was caught in the part of the river called Hnausastrengur where some of the river’s largest salmon have been caught. The salmon was caught using a fly called Evening dress number 12 which is green, gold and black with peacock feathers.
