CHART TOPPER FOR ERIC
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.
