This is our year and a bit cat Scoot- lives up to his name.
In our back yard. I would take him outside while I caught some grasshoppers for fishing, Columbia River 15 minute walk. One day I had him out and while getting some hoppers and I noticed him playing with something, when I went over to were he was, I saw he had caught a hopper -- still alive--Cool.
Thinking this was a fluke I continued with my hunt, caught a couple more and went fishing. Ended up with a couple small Rainbow- 2-3 lbs, all went back.
Next day I wasn't in the fishing mood so I took Scoot out in the backyard, sat in a lawn chair, couple beer in the cooler, arms length away and watched him catching more hoppers. Started thinking, I wonder if I could teach him to bait a hook and use a spinning rod Doesn't say anything, anywhere about "Cat" licenses

Nice shot. Mine, when I bring out the camera, and they hear the lens focus, run.

Thanks Pal, how is the fire situation in your next of the woods?

That reminds me of the fish and cat license on MontyPython.

Great shot of a beautiful cat. If it's still possible send me a kitten from this cat's line. Maybe I can teach it to catch Asian and fiddler crabs for me!

Scoot is certainly good at catching bait. He would also likely be good at catching fish.
The bad news is he would probably not share his catch with you. Did you share your fish with him?

I kept one, hooked to bad to release, cleaned it Scoot got the liver- lightly cooked. He seemed to like it, yet it was gone so fast I'm not so sure

Thanks all for your comments, much appreciated

Nice photo of the cat. I love the story. I'm a cat person and I love to hear stories about the various antics of cats.
