Wiki references the Guiness Book of Records for a 320lb specimen from the Po Delta in Italy.

I seem to remember seeing a photo several years ago, of two anglers holding a catfish that was estimated at 200 pounds. It was published in several national newspapers as well as the angling press and I'm sure it looked considerably bigger than that.


English as tuppence, changing yet changeless as canal water, nestling in green nowhere, armoured and effete, bold flag-bearer, lotus-fed Miss Havishambling, opsimath and eremite, feudal, still reactionary, Rawlinson End.
