Howdy, and welcome.

Feel free to join in and make yourself at home. To be honest, I wouldn't mind hearing about some of your warmwater opportunities up there in your part of Canada. Do you mind sharing a bit of that information?

Welcome to the forum

A while back I saw a fishing show about catfishing in the Red River. They were hauling in some monsters (non FF). Is that the same Red River as your location? If so, does anyone try for cats with the fly rod?

Welcome to the forum!!!

What flies are you using for the carp? What about for the cat?

Teflon-
Carp- mainly large nymphs ( hex/damsels/dragons etc)

Channel Cats- baitfish patterns mostly -Clouser/Modified Ally's Shrimp ( a great deep bodied baitfish tie, with a little fudging btw

Juro- yep a 15' 10/11 Spey rod - my fav. way to tackle the big rivers here and the big flows , not to mention the decent sized fish.

That's the first time I've heard of somebody catching a catfish on a fly rod! At least on purpose anyway...
