olivier The very firts albinos for JF. Caught on the Petit Rhône. Catfish of Mequinenza . It can happen: a beautiful morning and a beautiful silurid pricks in the hearings, died therefore of hemorrhage before photo. Sad remind fos us to pay attention. For me a big catfish. Thierry. Guy and his record to read on: "" report around the world.
With Guy it is never sad.
A model of endurance to the pain.
Not true my father? So, what? Just watch!! Thierry... A nice look, and a Hollywood smile, but a really smashing machine to make a 2 lbs carp look like a sole. A bad position for the fish, but a very, very hard fight thank to my rod: uptide power lift 9'6,2/8oz from Daiwa; in england you have a good chance to find. Very beautiful colors in an extraordinary biotop. As Olivier says, pay attention to the flukes. A small grandfather who came up to taste the temperature of this beautiful evening. It's a pity that its very gluey business card is always on my tee shirt. The history of this silurid can be read on "" (journey around the world) and it is not sad. "Just ask Claude." An unforgettable fight hey! hey! Under Claude's direction, I did ask him the question "can I pull ?". Yeah, go my p'tit boy... Well, three minutes later the silurid met the dry. It was one of the rods left alone by one of our pals from Switzerland. I din't want to let the fishhook steel in the muzzle of a fish. Jef and his all first silurid. We return to Mequinenza in June 2002. Jef hopes to be able to bring more of beautiful photos. This one was aggressive when turning back to the water. Franck and his capricious catfish. 4 attacks before being pricked.

claude.valette Again a beautiful "pèpère" for my friend René Weber of Berlin, who doesn't hesitate to make the displacement every year to face the Spanish catfish.
That one came "to reward" us, hardly 2 hours after our arrival on the station.
claude.valette Here is a style of photograph which " pays of mine ".
The fish does not need to be in entirety on a photograph to be emphasized.
It is seen that it is " a large truth ".
