A while back on Joe Pool there was a day when there were thousands of yellow grasshoppers floating and little 12” channel cats were going nuts on em. Wish i had a fly rod at the time. How many people can say they legitimately caught catfish on dry flies?

Oh baby, that sounds like fun. Situations like that are the reason I often carry 20 different types of rods with me when I fish. A quick run back to the van has resulted in many record catches over the years. roflmao You just never know what opportunities will develop during a fishing outing.

I've had a few day's on the flats were hoppers were getting blown into the water. The cats were cruising, looking for them. It was'nt dry fly fishing but i've caught a lot of them site casting.

This guy thought he was a tarpon. He hit my carp slayer fly, rocketed out of the water and did a full gainer. roflmao

First fish on a fly you tied yourself is a good one, no matter what it is.

I poled Shannon Drawe up on this one. A lot of fun in a foot of water.

Those are some good looking flies. thumb I bet a redfish will knock the stuffing out of those.

Thanks. Got the idea from TxFlycaster I think it was then I found a video from backwater fly fishing on how to tie it.

Nice catfish, all. The lake I live on is infested with channel catfish. I get them on woolly buggers and balanced leeches, but don’t generally see them first like in sight fishing. [Linked Image]

Gafftop are pretty willing to take a fly. Look for birds diving and nervous bait in the surf. Even the dreaded hardheads aren’t immune to taking flies.
