The Fishing Wire reports that a New Zealand angler has landed a 42 pound 1 ounce brown trout. If confirmed, the monster would set a new International Game Fish Association all-tackle world record for the species. The current brown all-tackle record is 41-8.
Otwin Kandolf caught the big fish while angling in a canal downstream from a salmon farm on the South Island.
