Landing the catfish took some work. I am guessing it was about 3lbs ish. It fought hard too. That was the hardest fish I have ever tried to land. It would take these long runs and bull dog me. I had a 9lb leader and 4lb tippet on. I am not real familiar with how hard this stuff can be pushed, so I was worried to say the least.
I also made a pvc rod holder to protect my fly rod in the car. Easy to make and cheap. Check out this blog for instructions on how to make your own.
I still have hopes of getting a carp on the fly and I am still trying to go after gar on the fly rod. I know I am not your typical fly fisherman, but I live in the St. Louis Metro East area. I have to fish for what is around.
