Yup, I fly fish when I get the hanckering to do it. LOL I used to go fly fishing for catfish. Yup, you read it right...........catfish. When we stocked the old farm pond we used to fish, we would feed the cats to see how they were growing. Well, I tied a fly that looked like a fish food pellet, and I would lay it on top of some of the bigger piles of the food. The biggest cat I caught was like 15 lbs. and it spooled me 2 times on the little fly rod that I had. I finally got it in it. I caught several 1-5 lbs. cats, along with a lot of trophy sized bluegills, lots of crappies, and a few bass.
I still tie flies from time to time. My Dad bought me a fly tying kit when I was a younger man, and I tied several of the flies in the book, and I tied my Dad a fly for stripers. We never did get the chance to use it, but a friend of ours who fishing for stripers said that it would work, cause the feather I used looked just like a shad. LOL
