I am recalling this creek as I walk down to another stream not that far from there, thinking about the most important lessons learned from fishing small waterways: namely, how to walk down steep banks and traverse tangled forests of limbs. 43 It seems that every creek I fish has a minimum grade of 45 degrees; sometimes it’s just a straight drop down to the water. The banks are crowded with luresnatching brush, and the trees behind you forbid any kind of backcast. You have to walk in a diagonal back and forth just to get to a spot to cast.

The catfish is about ten feet downstream and hasn’t turned around yet, which they are inclined to do. These stream cats will cruise in pods of one, two, or three, roaming in a circular course around a large pool, sometimes covering stretches of a hundred feet or more. Often, they choose to turn just before they get to your bait, and you wait C r e e k F i s h i n g for them to come by again on their next pass. This fish moves in the direction of the bait, but about four feet to the left. I think I’ve missed him when he suddenly turns and I know he’s going for it.

Hunt here,” says Eliot. So we load our guns, take long drinks of water, and empty boxes of number 8s into our shell bags. Little birds need little pellets, and lots of them. My 20-gauge is a short-barreled, heavy, obscure little gun made in Brazil. It shoots a wide pattern and swings well on quick shots. We walk abreast through the rice, taking laborious steps through mud and waist-high stalks, all the while waiting for that shrill flutter to break the windy drone of the prairie. I flush the first bird and drop it efficiently before it gets a couple of feet above the vegetation.
