Hi my name is Rick I am up from Arizona. I have been a Cat stalker for some years now. I will Fish with anything up to and including a broom stick with a lariat LOL.I also like fishing for Large Carp and Trout for the fight. I like using as light of Combo as I can for the challenge, but not with Catfish I am after the BIG ones and they do not come around as much as I like (40 plus pounders) so when I fish for them I use as heavy combo as I can and reel them in as fast as I can dont want to lose any of them. I am a poor country boy trying to make ends meet so no expensive Gear for me my favorite rig is a 7 foot 1 piece Beefstick ( rated Heavy ) with a Quantum tw80 spinning reel. Look forward to meeting you all and sharing ideas a of course the stories of the ones that got away.
