A fisherman who introduced his blind wife to fishing has been upstaged twice - as he watched her break two world records for catching giant catfish. Retired gardener Alan Penfold, 63, decided to start bringing wife Sheila along on his fishing trips four years ago but wouldnt have expected to be upstaged by his partially-sighted partner. She has broken the record for the biggest catfish ever caught by a woman and then hooked the largest albino catfish ever caught in two fishing holidays. Alan and Sheila regularly take trips to the famous River Ebro, near Barcelona, Spain to fish - but Mr Penfold could be forgiven for thinking that his wifes degenerative eye condition Retinitis Pigmentosa would prevent her matching him. The great grandmothers first big catch came when she caught a 214lb monster catfish in 2009 - the largest ever caught by a woman. The amateur angler had to be directed where to place her bait. DM
