Dave with a new PB 40 lbs
In total they caught and landed 45 fish. both left with new PB’s. Total weight was 1123 lbs which considering most of that was carp was pretty impressive.

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.
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.

ROB AND JAMES TRIP TO THE RIVER EBRO IN SPAIN WITH CATFISHINGCASPE
James and Rob started the week off in a flooded swim. The water was up to our waists with all work weighing being carried out in the water. This did not stop the lads of the fish and Pb’s were soon being broken repeatedly. The lads wanted Carp more than Wels Catfish and the first few days were to be disappointed as the Carp were hammering natural baits in the flooded margins. However the last two days the carp turned up in force and Pb’s were again smashed. They caught Carp up to 39lbs and Wels Catfish up to 148lbs All in all a successful trip with some fantastic fish caught. 43 fish caught in total with a lot of carp over the 30lb mark and many cats over the 60 lbs mark.

a new pb for Rob 148lbs of monster wels catfish
another double take resulting in a brace of cats 81 lbs and 95lbs
Chris and Tom’s visit coincided with the River Ebro’s highest water levels I have witnessed. The carp of course were still out spawning. Leaving us no backup fish to target we had to go all out for catfish and hope the rising water levels had not disturbed the feeding. Day 1 was slow with only 4 Silurus glanis being caught. Day 2 was a complete reversal with 19 catfish being caught. we lost 4 to Zebra mussels cutting lines and hook pulls. to say the day was frantic is an understatement. the first chance the lads had for lunch was 1400hrs. In total 19 Wels catfish were caught the largest being 102lbs a new PB for Tom. Chris had a new Pb of 70lbs after losing a monster catfish to zebra muscles.
This Wels Catfish weighing 73 kg,160 lbs was caught on a carp rod and proved to be a difficult fight. The fight had to be finished in the boat as the fish just continued to take line.
