I've been tying Chocklett's game changer fly for awhile and look forward to reproducing this result one day:

NICE Flathead!  That must have been a BLAST on a fly rod !!

I've caught a few cats on flyrod. A few on olive hares ear nymph, a few flatheads all on clousers, but the most productive I've been has been with a hopper pattern. At a local lake I fish bass for, the channel cats cruise the shallows and will readily take a topwater fly. Can always tell when the cats move up into the shallows because all the bass and bluegill will stop hitting suddenly.
