Belly boating and extreme fly fishing for Catfish

Belly boating and extreme fly fishing for catfish on the river Ebro, Spain

Belly boating and fly fishing for catfish!  a relaxing sport!  Not when you mix it with Monster catfish and huge Carp.  This is just what Marc Skovby from futurefly.dk, and Henrik Petersen did for the second Year.

This is the ultimate extreme fly fishing.  Especially as they were fishing the River Ebro, Spain home of the giant Wels Catfish.

World Records

Catfish fishing on the river Ebro,Spain. Extreme fly fishing in a belly boat

This 221 cm Wels Catfish was caught using a fly rod from a belly boat. unofficial world record!

The largest Catfish caught last year was 221cm.  The estimated weight was around 160 lbs.  which is 56 lbs larger than the current fly record.   They also caught Wels Catfish at 189cm,  162cm and this year one at 152,5cm.   That is fantastic sport and a amazing experience.
