    Thanks Reid, A black woolly bugger will do just fine buddy.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Can't go wrong with a black bugger.

    Olive and white clousers work great too.

    I have caught tons of fish on the fly. Bass, bluegill, crappie, all of the trouts, grayling, salmon, char, even a pike once, believe it or not, here in California. I have never caught a catfish. Plenty of the places I fish certainly have them. I have caught more than my share of them on bait. I was actually trying tonight at a regional lake that was just heavily stocked with them. I will have to make it a mission. Good luck to you guys.

    Tony, those California catfish are probably educated. You likely need to attach a label to your flies that conforms to Proposition 65.

    Brook Trout have scales, albeit small and smooth,..but they're still scales. I'll never be convinced that cats aren't despicable animals. But to be fair, a lot of my hate stems from eating lots of poorly prepared summer bullhead as a child.

    Any catfish over the size of a grown mans hand isnt worth eating. Small channel cat caught fresh out of the river is amazing.

    I love catfish.. no matter how big or small... its just always tasted good to me, fried that is. Maybe its just the Southern part of me..

    We have two members on the forum who fish them and get real big ones. Didgeridoo (might be spelling that wrong) and Dark Cahill. Both fish the Red River near Winnepeg, Manitoba and clobber monsters. Both I believe use black leech patterns. Try searching the forum because I know they have both posted on this.

    A picture of one of Didgeridoo's, and a link to a post.

    I just read back over the thread and see Ard beat to a bunch of it. Oops.
