    Behold the fisherman. he riseth early in the morning and disturbeth the whole household. mighty are his preperations. he goes forth full of hope and when the day is ended, he returneth smelling of strong drink and the truth is not with him. originator unknown.

    How about some of the Zambesi Vundu's?
    They get pretty big.

    Or even a Nile Perch.
    They can get very big as well.

    Yep, them Mekong Catfish are a serious species!

    I was actually quite surprised how hard they are to catch on fly!

    We had to bait the area and try 'trick' them on fly!
    I'm not kidding when I say the visibility is 2inches (5cm) in the places we fished!!!

    Strong fish, but ugly as all hell!

    what about those enormous sharptooth catfish in the Vaal Dam? i've seen pics of some over 6m long, probably weighing close to 200kg?
