Just for fun

This page is totally for fun and it will include my philosophies on fishing and also fishing trips I take. I grew up spin fishing and it has only been in the last few years that I started fly fishing. If you'd like to share any fishing experiences please let me know from time to time, I'll post fishing stories I've heard elsewhere. This article is interesting to me, did this guy feel a fish is worth dying for?

A Hungarian fisherman has drowned while trying to catch a 150lb catfish.

Gabor Komlosy was dragged into a river when he refused to let go of the line.
The 53-year-old’s body was later pulled from the Szamos river still clinging to his rod.
The 4ft monster catfish was still hooked on the end. Police in Hungary believe he had been yanked down the bank of the river by the fish.
It had then pulled him through the water until he hit his head on a rock and drowned.
A spokesman said: “When we pulled in his line, the fish was still stuck on the end.” - sky.

  1. I don't know if the guy ever knew what fish was on the end of his line, but much like "A River Runs Through It," it would take a lot to convince me to let go of a rod I built with a fly I tied rigged with a fantastic reel. Thanks for Phising.
