This is a story of four businessmen from a small market town in Suffolk, two men who run a forklift training company and two running a pet shop.
Chris Boaler-Hysett loves pole fishing in matches, both Dick Cheshire and his son Chris are into pike and spinning and Steve Morgan a carp specimen angler quite at home next to a lake or river waiting for days on end just to get that special one.
These four men went to Spain to fish the Rio Ebro for catfish as novices and between them not only caught five catfish – three of which were over two meters long – but one that turned out to be one of the biggest ever caught on rod and line, which was landed after the guide had gone home.
This was potentially the new Spanish, if not world record. Certainly a European record and nearly four times the British record which turned out to be an experience these four men would never forget, and this is their story.
