Catfish on a Fly Rod

Yes, you read that right, a catfish on a fly rod.  I know a lot of guys catch them on a regular basis, but this spring was the first time I've caught catfish on a fly.  2 catfish in 2 days.  Both on a size 12 bead head pheasant tail nymph that I was using to chase bluegill.

Since my last post, I've also caught some trout in my local lake.  The state of Kentucky decided to stock some trout on a put and take basis.  The water in the summer months is far too warm for trout to survive, but they were fun while they lasted.

I do need to get to the tying bench soon to replace all the flies I lost last summer and this spring.  Finding the time to tie flies has been a problem for me this year.  Work has been busy and settling down to tie flies has been difficult.

Hope all are catching a bunch of fish this spring.
