Aussie Salmon

Hi all, Sam here I'm just back from another trip to Australia. This time I landed my first Aussie Salmon, a 6kg fish. What great hard fighting sport fish they are, this fish engulfed my Savage gear 6in sand eel and took of like a bat out of hell. It stripped yards of line off the reel before I could get it to turn and as the fish got close to the rocks it jumped 3 or 4 times and then took off again on another long run. When I finally got the fish close to the breakwater there were some heart stopping moments as the fish was pushed along the rocks by a big swell causing the leader to rub on them but with the help of some of the other anglers we landed it, What a great fight and a super fish.
