Hey. Those of you who have seen 'Sjøørretlandet' might remember the scene where Kenn Gøran Grøtte Petersen catches a huge seatrout and then he and his friends go nuts. It's pretty funny and now it's on youtube.

Go check it out, it's a good laugh.

Shame it turnt out to be a salmon Rolling Eyes

Otherwise a very funny clip and an amazing feat considering it was landed on a size 12 double fly and 0.25mm leader! It took 2.5 hours to land.

Yea i heard that some argued it was a salmon, though i can't personally tell from the clip. Was it ever proved that it actually was a salmon?

As it was entered as an international sea trout record, scale samples had to be sent so that if could either be verified as a salmon or sea trout.

So it was verified by those that can, as a salmon and not a record breaking sea trout.

Who's "professional" enough to bring a camera should be able to bring a net as well and handle such a fish with respect. Sorry, I find this clip and the shown behaviour more than disgusting. Just plain embarrassment towards such a fine creature. Were they drunk?

The fish was most probably killed and eaten, thus being 'treated' in this way. As regards the treatment of the fish, well that's down to the way norwegians have learned to fish.

Due to the large populations of fish here, the tradition is for the most that what is caught is eaten. Of course this is gradually changing, but I believe that where fish stocks are lesser, fish are treated with better care and, catch and release practiced more often.

Having myself grown up in the UK with highly pressured fish stocks, I've been shaped into a C+R fisherman with a high awareness of fish care. There is certainly a defined difference between myself and my fellow norwegian fisherman regarding C+R. I may take 1 in 10, maybe even 1 in 20 fish home for dinner, whereas my norwegian counter-parts 1 in 3. I guess it's all about how you were bought up and local traditions.

Well no one can impose their way of doing things on the other. What common in Noway is not in the UK. I learnt 1st hand that in certian rivers you have to take what you catch as there are lots of smallish trout. I personally take only what I can eat at the dinner table the next day - irespective whether I fish for wild or triploid fish.

In waters where over crowding is a problem, I do kill everything under 300g. Can't say my actions make a huge dent in the waters population, but does certainly have a positive effect.

Recently I have experience first hand too many people judging others by their own morals and beliefs without having a full understanding of the other party's culture or beliefs. Personally I mean that to be able to judge someone or something, you should have a full understanding of all the facts first, then you're views are welcomed.
