October 2014 Fish of the Month Entry - Record Taimen!

Steven Todd caught this 1.2m giant Hucho Taimen while fishing the river Shishgid in Mongolia. He had trekked with a team of colleagues 80km along the river and finally managed to hook this beast, the fight lasted about 15 minutes and it made several leaps out of the water, and huge runs but eventually he managed to land the catch of a lifetime! The IGFA All tackle record is 105cm and this fish smashed it!
