Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

LEG­ENDARY rock star Eric Clap­ton traded his ‘gui­tar’ for a fish­ing rod and won an epic bat­tle with this record sal­mon.

The UK-born mu­sic icon, whose huge cat­a­logue of hit songs in­cludes Layla and Won­der­ful Tonight, plucked out the 28lb spec­i­men, the largest sal­mon of the sea­son so far from the Vatns­dalsa River in Ice­land.

It mea­sured over a me­tre, and ‘Slow­hand’ had to give chase for more than a kilo­me­tre be­fore fi­nally beat­ing the huge fish to the banks of the wa­ter­way.

Eric’s 28lb sal­mon was mu­sic to his ears.
