I wish I was a salmon fisherman.

I went spey rodding for walleye, bass, catfish, or whatever else was willing to bite. Unfortunately, there was a bunch of neanderthals in the wash immediately below the dam . The cromags were having some luck with the walleye in the morning, and one of them even caught a nice trout (where'd it come from?). Of course, with all them lowering the collective IQ of the entire area there was no room for yours truly to swing flies.

I was able to try out a 9 weight, 14 foot, Sage Euro Spey. My word, the rod is super nice, but it just reinforces the fact that I cannot fish for atlantic salmon, the king of all game fish, more than once per year...if that. My acceptance of this great travesty has lead me down a new path: I am going to swing flies for catfish.

Does anyone have any patterns they like to swing for catfish? I have a few flies that seem promising, but I think I may need to add jungle cock eyes for them to be effective.

Glad to see you around, i heard you were MIA for a little!

I wish I was a salmon fisherperson too. :(

BTW I think you catch catfish with a plaid shirt and your hands....at least that's how they do it on TV.
Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby. If you give her a house, she'll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal.So if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit.

Stay out of the bait-chuckers world, and they will stay out of yours.
