The Clown Featherbacks were the first of the Featherbacks that I introduced into the lake. At that time I didn’t even know that the Giant variety existed; I just thought that they were such an interesting fish. I bought some locally, that came out of the river Ping; I think about 4 or 5 kg at that time, although in the Ping I believe they can reach 12 or 13 kg. There are none in here of that size at the moment – I think they struggle in here competing with all of the other predators, especially since they have quite small mouths and are therefore competing for only the small prey fish.
