    Wow! You were right JP, I liked that one. On the bright side, if you tie a fly the size of a pidgeon you don't need to cast it very far. That was amazing.

    Not sure I'd want to let my feet dangle in the water there!

    They are Wels Catfish. They get huge. There are Midievel paintings that depict Wels grabbing people from the shore like that. They get to several hundred pounds and have attacked the fisherman trying to hand land or release them They are gigantic nasty fish. JP sent me a video of a guy getting one on a fly rod. If I had fish like that near me that would take a fly, I'd be all over that one.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.
