The first night for my buddy backed from Holland at Last week was miserable condition, high
and muddy water, so actually tonight was the real first trail for him. After work, I mail to him
I will wait for him to change clothes but he said he would not mind as he used to fish wear
suites when he was in Holland. We stopped over a fly shop and chatted over with shop owner
and his customer a little bit then headed to the river. It looked like perfect condition for cats,
as it's a very hot and humid night, like South-Eastern countries. When temperature have been
high, over 30℃ in these days, frogs, cicadas, crockets and other insects are getting more and
more active, so do cats.
Water colour and flow were good. Just about ten minutes later, I got a first bite but missed it.
The second one was on at next cast after with a few pop, maybe same fish or not. It's a good
50cm+ fish and when I grabbed the leader and was pulling it up, suddenly it came loose and
gone, no photos... Just about ten minutes later I got another bite and hooked up firmly, a little
bit smaller than last one, but still good enough for me.
Shortly later, my buddy screamed from lower stretch of the river, "FFFFFiiiiissssshhhhh on!"
The first ever catfish for him was firmly bit orange popper and I carefully landed it. Good job
