My dad had a stroke nearly 2 years ago and finally has got well enough and asked me to take him fishing. I managed to and decided to concentrate on his rod. It worked and I'm glad I had a camera to capture his face light up when he got it in.
The real challenge was taming the beast on the carp gear! I was using a 3lb test curve jrc rod 26lb mono mainline and a 20lb braided hook length on a Daiwa wind cast reel with a size 6 mugga continental hook! Took 40mins to land!
This was my second night trying to catch my first catfish. I had to work during the day and headed back for the second night and caught this within 25 minutes of casting out. I will be back for some more moggy action.
