Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS. It's not easy for most people or other "regular" fish keepers to understand why we maintain this type of collection and spare no expense on this fascinating hobby.

Hopefully, through this site and discussion forums we can encourage the next generation of Monster Fish Keepers to have the same passion and love we have for the hobby and our Monster Fish .

      I didn't realize he had caught a world record. Clearly that species hasn't been fished very much. The show is pretty good, yesterday it was about the arapaima.

      I'm pretty sure I've seen Bagarius Yarelli on this forum. Anyone that owns one is nuts.

      Jeremy Wade started angling fishing a small river near where i live the Suffolk Stour, he went on to fish stillwaters for carp and catfish.(once agin like i do) At 16 he was the youngest member of the British Carp Study Group. In his early twenties, however, he hung up his rods, in response to overcrowded British lakes. Then in inspired by a magazine article about fishing for mahseer, he went to India.Since then he has made expeditions to south-east Asia, Zaire (now Democratic Republic of Congo), the People's Republic of Congo (now Republic of ...), India (again) and the Amazon. During these journeys he has caught malaria, narrowly escaped drowning, and survived a plane crash. (get a copy of jungle hooks) In between times, he has worked as a tour leader, motorcycle despatch rider, supply teacher, art tutor, translator (Portuguese-English), PR consultant, dishwasher and newspaper reporter. he has caught some very big fish and from all over the world.

      I'd say the guy has a passion for monster fish. Not unlike our membership.

      He is great for MFK. He has a real passion for showmanship and the monster fish.

      That show on the Goonch has been aired this year but I believe it first came out last October/November on TV.
