Lune mys­tery

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - KNOW HOW -

I won­der if any read­ers know the story be­hind the cap­ture of this mag­nif­i­cent salmon (pic­tured)? Caught – prob­a­bly by fly, if the tackle in the photo is what was used – by a jus­ti­fi­ably proud H Ashworth Esq from The Deeps, River Lune, Oc­to­ber 22, 1960. Weight: 39lb 3½oz. The photo is glued to the back of a ma­hogany board, to which is mounted a very de­tailed cast of the salmon, with the above de­tails recorded for pos­ter­ity. Were such salmon caught with any fre­quency on the Lune in that pe­riod? Any in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing this fish (and other no­table Lune salmon) and Mr Ashworth’s an­gling ex­ploits would be most wel­come. Any read­ers with in­for­ma­tion can con­tact me at tomdt­war­[email protected] Tom War­ing, In­ver­ness
