We did not gat back with empty hands. Four catfish were caught (and slackened after the photo souvenir).
The two biggest were each 217cm and the two smaller ones measured 173cm and 150cm.

  It is not the first time that this spanish silure of the Segre river becomes acquainted with a fisherman, this ring is the proof of it.
Personally I prefer the tattooing method of Jean Claude Tanzilli.
Tattooing is more scientist and useful and it don't harm the fish.
Surely this silure would not contradict me.

  Below points of tattooing for classification J.C. TANZILLI & Professor CAILLERE.
The marking of bleue color is carried out by injection under the skin on some of the zones numbered (the mark is made up of several small points).
There are series with 2,3,4... zones tattooed.
If you capture a catfish with these marks of tattooing, it acts of a specimen test.
You can raise the numbers of the zones tattooed as well as the length (longueur), the weight (poids), the date (date) and the place of capture (lieu), and make us follow them.
We will transmit this information to J.C.TANZILLI.
