Who said anglers exaggerate? Here’s a television news programme talking about a goliath tigerfish caught on the Congo river by Jeremy Wade. I think Jeremy told me the fish was close to 80lb. That obviously wasn’t big enough for the fragrant TV announcer… Still, the fish itself is awesome. Watch it here.
If the goliath tigerfish fascinates you, get a copy of The Largest Tigerfish in the World by Douglas Dann. He really has caught them over 100lb, and he’s got the pictures to prove it.
