It turns out that one of the greatest musicians of all time, is just as good with a fly rod as he is with a guitar.
While on a fly-fishing trip to Iceland last week, Eric Clapton landed a 28-pound salmon on the Vatnsdalsá River, setting the record for catching the biggest salmon of the summer. The fish measured 42.5 inches. Slow Hand had to run over half a mile downriver after hooking the monster, and spent two and a half hours reeling it in.
The local fishing association enforces a strict catch-and-release policy on the Vatnsdalsá River, but Clapton was able to snap a picture of his record-setting catch before setting it back into the river.
