If the weather is too nasty to get out, you might like these books. "Channel Catfish Fever" by Doug Stange, Steve Quinn & Toad Smith (with a name like "Toad", I'll listen!) "Fishing for Catfish" by The Freshwater Angler (With the slick photography, I figured it would be fiction by some fly-tying snob, but the book has solid info.) I got my copies used on Ebay.
