My mates wasn't in the rod holder. He was using it in his hands when it snapped. He landed the fish, and put it in the holder for a photo

 What was length of dhuie out of curiosity? I got a 900mm dhu last trip but I never weigh fish. Maybe I should because when ppl see photos they always what it weighed. I guessed mine was around 12-15 kgs but I could be way off
