Hey folks, I'm currently in Iraq but I just got orders to FT Riley. I'm kinda a noob at this catfishing thing, I grew up in Oregon and Washington so I'm mostly a salmon, steelhead, trout guy. However, I am an equal opportunity fisherman and after viewing some of your pictures, I think I got the catfish bug. I've been stationed in Germany for the last 3 years, plus a year in this glorious sandbox, so needless to say my fishing opportunities have been limited. I'm eager to rectify that. Anyways, I was just wondering if you guys could give me a little info on what type of gear I might want to start stockpiling. Also, I've got two kids that are already turning into fanatic fishermen, so any info on good places to take the little guys around FT Riley would also be appreciated. Thanks, and I'll see you all in a couple months!
