And at the weekend one of the really big catfish was taken by Trev Hoskins.

After banking a couple of 20lb plus carp, the giant catfish took his 15mm liver-flavoured boilie. After a right old tussle he managed to bank it and it weighed in at 64lb.

For the specialist anglers Hoskins fished 15lb GT80 line, a size 6 barbless hook, on a single straight through bolt rig.
