Cyril from LeMouching.com 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!
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!
