New Product Redefines Catfishing

What is it with the bizarre Kickstarter fishing projects this month? First those kooky Danish designers with their fake hands that make your fish appear larger and now this. This product, called the Cat-Fish, utilizes a small fly reel and rod to mess with cats. I have to admit that I've done this a handful of times and even made one of these with a broken tip, some 20-pound mono, and a hookless mouse fly. It's actually pretty fun. As kids, we'd walk around our neighborhood armed with old line, a stout leader, and hookless mouse patterns, and torment all the outdoor kitties that happen to be lounging around. I'm not sure you need a dictated instrument to play this game, but I will say it's pretty entertaining.

I’ve got your wheels turning don’t I…?
