Cyril from wrote to us to tell us about this monstrous Marmoratta Trout caught on a fly in Slovenia (Soca River). Clearly he wasn’t kidding when he said it was huge, but he also says it’s the largest Marmoratta Trout ever caught on a fly!

Huge Marmoratta on the fly!

I’m not sure what the current record is, but these photos clearly speak for themselves! The fish weighted in at 22.5Kg, that’s almost 50 pounds (!!), and was 120cm, almost 4 feet long!

Cyril also mentioned that the reel is a Vivarelli, which apparently some people criticize as only being good for catching small fish. We’ll it looks like that myth just got shattered in to a million pieces.

All photos were taken by Maurizio Maule, and there are many more after the break!
