Nice! I'm still in my first year of fly fishing and was really surprised when I caught my first cat. All the years of throwing spinning lures and never hooked a catfish unless I switched to bait.
Glad you got out. I overslept and missed my opportunity to get a line wet locally before the holiday festivities commenced on the rivers here. Thinking about getting up early tomorrow morning and fishing for a couple of hours before putting in a day's work.
