I have decided to dedicate a section of my web site to one of my favourite species the catfish. However, as I know little about the catfish compared to other more common species I have called on the knowledge of others to aid completing an educational and informative section.

A former university colleague of mine and catfish angler Andy Black has kindly submitted some very interesting information that many others will be keen to read. Although a section on angling for the species is available for those chasing big cats it is less common to find such information regarding biology and prey detection so I recommend you take a look as it is excellent information.

Thanks again to Andy and I hope you all enjoy his work.
