TenkaraBum Challenge - Channel Catfish
by Alan Luecke
(Kansas City, MO)
We received some much needed rain this weekend but all the creeks and rivers are high and muddy. I went to a small municipal lake I know is stocked with catfish to give it a try. I caught this one within minutes and spent a very peaceful hour in the rain walking around the lake, catching a few fish ( sunfish, another cat) and not seeing a soul.
The rig was my Daiwa Kiyose 43MF with a size 10 "hook up" killer bugger. I'm getting a post together on tying a bugger that rides hook up for bottom work.

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662
As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
