Francois Helias of http://www.fishasia.ksc.th.com/ informed me this morning that one of his Russian clients has broken the IGFA record for Catla Carp. Angler, Viktor Sergeev from Russia, caught today, a 18.77 kg monster topping the previous record of 15.17 kg which Francois landed in January 2009. The paperwork once completed will be filed with the IGFA for record approval. This will be the 250th IGFA World Record for Francois and his clients. This is most likely a World Record in itself!
Make sure to get in touch with Francois on your next visit to Thailand-
