Jeff Currier's Huchen

April 26, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

Jeff Currier always wanted to catch a huchen, “a large salmon found in the Danube River and its tributaries and perhaps the rarest salmonid on the planet. As he always does when driving near a river, Currier was looking for fish. His sharp eyes spied something he thought could be a huchen, so he had Trzebunia do a U-turn and return to the spot. The fish was gone, and Trzebunia was skeptical. ‘He said “It must be a log,”‘ Currier recalled.” Willy Zimmer in the Jackson Hole (Wyoming) Star Tribune.
