Default hello from WV

Hey folks, I'm new to this board (just found it) though I've posted to others for awhile. I'm a lifelong fly fisherman, mostly for trout and the occasional smallmouth trip. I fish West Virginia and western Maryland, and used to fish SW Virginia a lot. Been out west (Montana) a couple times and would love to go back if the cards fall right. Haven't been able to fish as much in the last couple years as I used to, but made it out several times this summer and fall. My new favorite pursuit: catching channel cats on the fly out of farm ponds. They put a bend in a five-weight! I've landed three so far (biggest was 22"), lost a couple more.

Welcome. They only recently began stocking catfish in stillwaters here in england and it would certainly be interesting if anyone went after them with a fly, but whether the fisheries that have them would allow it is debatable though I'd love to try it

Good to have you posting with the group here, being a former channel cat aficionado I know about the bend of the rod they produce. I've caught them in currents and had them run like a salmon, very exciting fish the channel cat.

Nme: Welcome to the forum and as Mark stated catching channel cats must be some great fun. You might post a thread on how you do it, I'm sure there are a bunch of us that would be interested in learning how to catch one on a fly rod.

Welcome to the forum! I also fish Western Maryland (mostly lower Savage River) as well as the North Branch. Looking forward to your post and pics!
