    This was in the latest Outdoor Report from VDGIF:

    Come out and wade for big Flathead Catfish on the James River at Pony Pasture in the City of Richmond with professional guide, Mike Ostrander of the James River Fishing School. This workshop is for adults 18 and over. Get more details and register online for Flat Out Catfish Workshop I and Flat Out Catfish Workshop II.

    Could be of interest to fellow BOCs.

    Tight lines.

    I emailed Mike about the guide trip, and it's a little out of my range. I figure since I'm minutes away from that area I should take it upon myself to learn that area. This weekend is going to be my first Flathead hunting trip at Pony Pasture, I'm going to be looking for the holes...I'll report any catches.
    I think I'm going to sign up for these classes if I can take the daze off work...:eek:oooh: regardless I'm going to focus heavy on that area. Last year I wasted alot of time in the lower James....save that for fall and winter when the monsters are out.
    later
    good luck
