Not only is Eric Clapton one of the best musicians ever to take the stage… but this SECOND monster Salmon tells us he’s a damn fine fisherman, too.

What’s Eric Clapton spend his time doing when he wants to unplug?

He goes to Iceland and breaks Salmon fishing records.

In 2016, this is the monster he landed that set the record for that year.

It looks like something out of Jurassic Park.
28 lbs, 42.5″

Well, that was LAST year.

How’s this year stacking up?

It was another fantastic summer of fishing:

One of the summer’s biggest salmons to be caught was caught by no other than British musician Eric Clapton on Friday in the Vatnsdalsá river. The salmon measured 105 centimetres and it took Clapton 40 minutes to land it. — Iceland Monitor

(That’s 41.3 inches if you don’t want to google it.)

Is there anything Clapton DOESN’T do well?
