Catfish can be some of the heaviest fish to catch comfortably and for this reason you may need specific catfish fishing equipment. Fishing for larger species in fresh water means you need certain reliable and strong fishing gear when trying to land catfish. Take a look at the hooks and floats you will need for catfish fishing. They are much larger and more robust than fly fishing equipment, partly because of the extra weight of a catfish, and partly because when you get a catfish on the hook you will realise they are considerably stronger than many other kinds of fish!
