  1. Guess who has two thumbs and has never caught a Blue Cat?
  2. This marked my 30th fly rod species in Missouri since moving last mid-July. 9 months. Not bad, especially considering this period included the Winter months! In ~15 years of flyfishing in Iowa, to the best of my recollection, I managed 38 species in-state. Without going Micro, my list of possibilities is growing shorter. Fish still on the "would love to catch on a fly here" list include: Longnose Gar Rock Bass Blue Catfish Hybrid Striped Bass Bowfin Warmouth Redspotted Sunfish Chain Pickerel Flier Brown Trout I'm sure there ar
  3. (FND14) Black Bullhead: Went out for an hour last night in the drizzle, caught 4 bullheads by sightfishing muddy water with a fly rod. Big wide head on this one:

  5. I didn't see the fish until I set the hook. But I could see a boulder that it was apparently next to. The microjig was suspended about 3' below the indicator. I looked away for a moment...when I looked back, the indicator was going down, I set the hook and then saw the big fish dive over the side of the boulder for the deeper water. I had been casting across the creek, and the end of the retrieve brought it next to that boulder for many casts with nothing. Persistence paid off. Or luck. Earlier I had fished along the bottom without an indicator, trying a couple weedless black bugger/scu
  6. When I caught the goldfish, I was actually hoping for one of these: Bullhead. But none were visible that day. Went back the next day without a rod, and saw a dozen or so...including the one above.
  7. I've already caught Goldfish this year...just showing this one as it is my new MO PB Goldfish. Still caught bigger ones in Iowa, but this one was a really nice fish at 11":
  8. (FND13) Freshwater Drum 21"....my new fly rod PB.
  9. (FND12) Grass Carp Caught 2. Both were tiny trout-sized Grass Carp. I'm sure I'll get bigger ones yet this year.
  10. That's a great-looking crappie, Jim! Congrats!

  12. Here's a nice little key with photographs from North Carolina, but many of the Missouri species are the same. https://ncfishes.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/NC-Suckers-and-Identification-Key.pdf
  13. Here's a Golden Redhorse I caught. Good-sized scales. I think you ID'd yours correctly. And here's two presumed White Suckers I caught, for your comparison...I'd buy that you caught at least one of these:
