Wow, that's some fish!!, glad you got in some good fishing while you were there, were you on your own? we went to Devon several times, honeymooned in Ilfracome, then later stayed in Torquay & toured around, great memories!

Buy those at the local fish market?
lol, jk, nice fish. I like to fish, only if I catch something. I went to montana for fly fishing a couple times, but thats kinda lame, you have to reel in when the fish are calm, cause the line is so thin. I like bass fishing and fishing where the fish put up a great fight.
