Random Pics: Fly Caught Channel Cat

Fly Caught Channel Cat

I was just looking through my pictures and this one caught my eye.  It’s a channel cat caught on a cork popper.  We were at my brother’s wedding rehearsal dinner and of course somebody brought a fly rod – who doesn’t for such events.

As the sun set the big cats came into shore.  I advised the fisherman (my step-dad) to try a popper; these are dog-food fed fish in a private pond, so using a big popper was matching the hatch.  After about 5-minutes he had a hook-up, 15 minutes or so later he finally brought it in.

That’s my daughter providing a surreal counterpoint to the catfish – and a product placement advert for Minute-Maid.
