Cat On A Fly

Friday, June 11, 2010 , 1 Comments

Wednesday Bret and I went to Lonestar Lake with the Free State Fly Fishing Club. They fish together at one of the surrounding lakes every Wednesday night and I am going to start making it a point to go regularly, as it seems to be an awesome group of guys and I can think of no better way to get better at fly fishing than to learn from their experience. However, this is not the exciting news. I did mediocre to poor that night, only catching a Crappie and a Bluegill, but Bret did spectacular catching two Channel Catfish and a Bluegill on a Green Sarge's Crappie Fly. Not only was it great that he caught two nice cats, one of which was four and a half pounds, on a fly rod but they were also the first fish he caught on a fly rod. Great job Bret. Pictures below.
