Thanks TRM- i did enjoy the trip to Spain vary much. Fishing was slow, but i located some big carp in that river, when i say big i mean big- some were about 60 lb for sure. Im going back there next year to try better the cat record, and possibly catch some of these carp.

Dougie- the fish was small by the standards set by other anglers. Record of that stretch of the river is 224lb 10oz!  cought by Chris Trimmer in 2006. :o

Siara, what do you using for bait? How was your line setup? We don't have anything like catfish in New Zealand, we only have three fresh water sport fish, the Brown trout (Salmo trutta), Rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and Quinnat salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha).

We have tried few different set ups. Halibut pellet on its own, halibut pellet with squid`s head, squid on its own on double hook set up. Hooklength was 220 lb braid. Main line 250 lb braid. The hooks were of the size 10/0.

True.
When livebaiting for catfish it is vary common to use the 4 lb carp as bait.
Pigs liver, or whole toad are also good alternatives.
Eels work good too.

VERY interesting display base, like a flying saucer cutaway a section as it was teleporting a specimen back to the ship!

Superb Workmanship Siara!

I should almost assume you are scratch building the vegetation for the diorama,  any hints on what you are using for the vegetation? Or will these be tricks of the trade be coming forthwith in your extensive tutorials on soldering and now diorama;D that will be forced upon you by all! ::)

Cheers!

The short algae like vegetation is just plain moss- found on the wall in the back garden, and painted Tamiya X-15 Light Green. No tricks here. ;)
