Some of my fishing buddies try to categorize cat fishermen as "the bottom of the food chain" and that gets me mad. So, to "channel" my anger (pardon the pun), here comes this post: Now I know that everyone on this site is fond of fishing for cats. As we can all see from the complexity of this web site, successful catfishing does take a lot of knowledge and skill. However, I am interested in your opinions on what types of fishing require the most expertise and skill on the part of anglers. I recently took a fly fishing class, and I think that discipline is very hard to master due to the knots and casting skills required. Being that musky fishing is a close second to catfishing in my heart, I think that musky fishing also requires a lot of skill. Muskie are the "fish of 10,000 casts" and that type of fishing requires a lot of patience, skill, and attention to detail. Chime in here BOC and defend your passion! Is catfishing an easier discipline to master than other forms of fishing?
