    First Salmon Hampshire Salmon

    I fished the Hampshire Avon yesterday starting around 2pm.

    A wee bit of casting practice then changed rods - AWM 14'9" 10/11 with Loop fs head and 2.5 inch plastic tube.

    Three casts or so and saw surface movement and jag jag, fish on.

    I'm afraid it was a difficult battle, high river, net miles away, fish too big for salmon net, but I landed it - twice.

    It looked thick of shoulder, perfect tail, strong, small head, but grey more than silvery blue, and 36 inches.

    No pics, I got the hook out, and rolled it straight back where it swam away.

    I have afib so had two bouts of hyper ventilation in battle and thought don't let me catch another today, I was absolutely wrecked for five minutes.

    A nice start to your season friend,

    I'm sorry about your being light in the head, but your reward was worth it.

    Thanks for the story,

    Wow, what a lovely start to the season. I have yet to catch a salmon. You picked a lovely river to do it on. Graham
