    I thought I would have a change from my normal Barbel sessionafter work this week and have an evening at an estate lake owned by one of my clubs; catching a Tench or two, which resulted in my very first Wels Catfishand made the evening a bit special. It was not a big one as far as Catfish go at 8lb 8oz but it was my first.

    It was caught on a hair-riggedHalibut Pellet coated in Halibut Paste together with a smallPVA bag of Halibut pellets as feed.

    It didn't fight like a carp (taking long runs to the nearest lillies) or Barbel(zooming off through the nearest streamer weed) but it took longerto land than a Carp of the same sizeit just seemed to swim around aimlessly without giving up. whether that is how they normaly fight I don't know.
