Footnotes

  • Miss Ballantine caught the biggest salmon ever to be taken on a rod and line in British waters. Ninety-one years later this record remains unbroken, now one of the longest surviving records in the UK. She was fishing from a boat on the river Tay, accompanied with her father who was a ghillie, fishing with a spinner and a Malloch rod she hooked in to this behemoth of a salmon, it subsequently took her 2 hours to play and catch the record breaking fish.

    The original fish was cast in plaster by P. D. Malloch and is at Glendelvine with Sir Gavin Lyle. The limited edition replicas were cast in fibreglass by George Jamieson by taking a mould from this original plaster cast.
