Hey there, long time no post, but I've been lurking.
I know there are some catfish anglers on here and I thought they might like this story about a 49.8 lb. flathead that set a new Michigan state record. The old record was 47.5 lbs. and was set in 1943. There is a pic of the fish included.
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
