| "Dear Jean-Francois,
Watinee and I thoroughly enjoyed our fishing trip for the red-tailed catfish. The pirarara is truly a unique member of the catfish family. I am aware of no other catfish that displays such vivid and vibrant colors. The beauty of this species serves to punctuate the thrill of catching such a powerful and determined fighter.
The red-tailed catfish deserves high respect for both brawn and beauty and after fighting a number of these beauties during our recent trip with you, we are looking forward to a return match in the future. Thanks for a very enjoyable trip."
