Apparently Eric Clapton is good at all things involving strings.
According to Ice News, Clapton set a record for “hauling the biggest salmon of the summer in the Vatnsdalsá river so far” over the weekend. Iceland’s Vatnsdalsá fishing website congratulated the guitar virtuoso on his impressive salmon catch, in a blog post titled “fight of the year.”
The blog reads, “To begin with the salmon was quite in the pool but after it found out that something strange was happening the fish started to run down the river. Both the angler and the guide had to run fast down the river and it kept going for about 1 km after going through 4 pools. Two and a half hour later they manage to land that fish and it was measured 108 cm which is the biggest salmon this year.
Both the angler and the salmon were totally done after this fight but both the angler and the salmon recovered after few minutes. The picture is showing Eric Clapton which was the angler with the fish and of course we congratulate him with this fantastic fish.”
It looks wonderful (for dinner), tonight.
