I took a long walk along Mason creek here in Katy and saw schools of baitfish swirling, swimming, and skimming after the mowers had cut the grass. I saw a few pods of these catfish and several pods of threadfin shad. Has anyone tied a catfish fly. I recall someone saying the bass will hammer these little catfish. I'm thinking a black woolly bugger should work.

Pattern appears to be Red/Yellow (kill a fella) and Black. If so that is one big Coral Snake....not to be messed with.

Hellgramites x2. Not a Coral snake..... most likely a banded water snake. Its about to shed its skin too.

Thought this was going to be about catching catfish on a fly. In that case I was going to recommend a black woolly bugger, which caught me a 3 pound channel catfish this past Saturday.
