Nice! My wife would be thrilled if I went 'gill fishing and accidentally caught a catfish :-)

Dink It really was. I really have a hard time remembering to play the fish not just to keep reeling but it was fun on the 4wt thank you.

I really wasn't trying to catch it I was trying the fly out for the gills. Anyone that come over is welcome to all the cats they wish I need to get them out. I have a bait I made a couple months ago that works fine but after you catch 1 or 2 they all leave. I took a hole punch and punched one out of 3mm brown foam that looks like a pellet. I will catch then as needed they eat well with all the pellets they eat.

Thanks Rex I'm finding it was lots of fun on the 4wt you have no choice but to play the fish out. Took about 10 minutes.

Hi Jacob Lindy Hill. The fly was a Rubber Legged Dragon I made last week I think but It sinks real slow.

Dick, why not do the Booby Fly that Greghopper made. Black and brown will be the perfect choice since pellets are the feeding choice still.
