Indeed! Nice fish! It amazes me that people consider some species "trash". Really? Hook them on a fly rod and you'll have a good time. I used to look down my nose at saltwater cats until I started fly fishing rather than using heavy spinning gear. Now, I'd still as soon avoid catching one due to the slime and their toxic spines, but darned if they don't put up a good fight. They are a strong solid fish. They're not something I look for, but I don't complain when I hook one either. Its usually on a brown clouser or a crab or shrimp pattern. Nice catch on a fly in fresh water.
