I've been aware of this place for a while as I'd seen a guy a couple of months back with a Catfish of maybe nearly 120lb's. He'd posted his pics up on a blog that I can't find the link for now. If I remember it made the local paper at the time.

The fishery is out Thetford way and from what I can gather the owner has made no secret that all the fish are European and have been imported in the right way although I think they may of been an EA investigation of some sort.

The ticket price is 30 odd for 24 hrs. Is that right Michael?

Good going by the way it must of been some experience! I might of found it a strange one personally but I'm not knocking...
