CHRIS WATHEN and his father, Richard, had a fan­tas­tic trip to Church­wood Fish­eries, in Es­sex, catch­ing 15 cat­fish, topped by this

47 lb spec­i­men.

The 23-year-old land­scaper from Poole, in Dorset, caught ten cats, in­clud­ing the big­gest, and Richard landed five.

Chris re­vealed: “All of the cat­fish were caught on the same rod from the same spot. I caught four on the first day, and be­cause our other rods re­mained mo­tion­less, we took it in turns on the rod that was pro­duc­ing all of the ac­tion.

“The cats were caught on zig rigs fished over a big bed of hal­ibut pel­lets, which we rowed out in a boat ev­ery few hours,” added Chris.
