Monster Catfish Fishing with Mike Salisbury. 

The "Wels catfish" is without doubt the largest and hardest fighting fish in the United Kingdon. Although catfish are not native to the UK there's a a couple of waters near London that hold some notable fish. We'll put in front of them and give you the tuition and tackle to bank one or more of these amazing fish. 

Catfish fishing in the UK has really started to take off. As a non native species you won't find catfish in many waters. Special licenses and permission are required to move, buy, own and release these fish. Although there are some catfish in the Thames the most notable in the UK come from still waters. 


Mike Salisbury is an Angling Trust level 2 coach and full time fishing guide who targets the larger of the species available in the UK. He's a regular contributor to many of the high profile angling publications and we believe he's one of the best out there. You'd be hard pushed to find a better UK guide to teach the techniques that have brought us cat fishing as we know it today. All our tackle is uprated to catch fish in excess of 100lbs in weight. 


The location of these sessions are on the London an Essex borders where we have 3 lakes available. All with fish over 100lbs available. Transport from London is pretty simple, trains run from central to within a couple miles of the lakes where you can either jump in cab the remainder or for a small additional fee the guide can pick you from the station. 

You will learn how appropriate tackle, selecting the right swim to fish, bait choice, bait delivery, landing and fish handling.


The waters are TOP SECRET so don't ask, We won't tell until your booking is confirmed.
