Previous Heaviest Salmon:
The biggest ever Dee fish is thought to have been 57lb caught in 1884 by Mr C Gordon, Ghillie at Ardoe & Murtle, which is mentioned in Fred Buller's Domesday Book of Giant Salmon. Trying to confirm a weight from the annals of time is of course extremely difficult. Rumour has it that it was bigger than 57 lbs.
