Legend Musician Eric Clapton Lands Record Icelandic Salmon For The Season

When your rock n roll royalty like 71 year old Eric Clapton getting out chasing big salmon on fly might seem like a strange mix – but for Clapton chasing the big ones seems like a passionate hobby and one by the looks he is as good at as strumming the guitar.

Check out this massive salmon that has taken the current season record on the Vatnsdalsá river in Iceland and took Clapton a reported half an hour to land and covered a kilometer of stream fighting it. The salmon measured in at 42.4 inches and weighed a solid 28 pounds.
