Angler Andrew McAdam struck lucky as he was blessed with beginners luck as he caught a massive 38lb salmon on the Tay on his first attempt at salmon fishing. Mr McAdam can be see with his monster catch below. The salmon had a bit of growing to go before breaking any records though as the biggest king salmon ever caught was 126-pound monster that was caught in a fish trap near Petersburg, Alaska in 1949.
