    anybody target eel tailed catfish?

    i nearly caught 2 yesterday, i had 2 take a fly but didn’t hook up. they are nesting at the moment and casting into the nest can elicit some aggressive territorial behaviour. i found yesterday that bigger flies got a better response most likely since they were deemed a bigger threat to the nest.

    it was great fun sight casting to nests close to the bank and watching their behaviour. mostly it was tenkara style.

    I had one on last year out the eastern side of Tenterfield but lost him to a light tippet  but also have caught smaller ones at the back of the goldcoast they seemed to get wary after a few cast fun on the 3#
