Team Catfish Updates
Next, we bring Jeff Williams on the show and discuss some of the latest products from Team Catfish. Here are some of the basics of what is discussed in this show:
iCat Catfish Rods and High Standard Rods – The iCat and High Standard brand fishing rods are a new line from Team Catfish. The iCat/High Standard fishing rods are made from carbon blanks developed from materials and technology that is similar to what has been used for arrow shafts. This rod was designed for catfish anglers drifting or bottom bouncing where they are using controlled drift fishing techniques where they hold the rod and bump the rod on the bottom (for more explanation of this technique check out the interview with Bill Dance).

Catfish Warrior Rods – The Catfish Warrior rod are a “do all” catfish rod being sold through the Team Catfish Cheap Sinkers website. This is an e-glass fishing rod that is made in America that has a parachute cord wrapped handle and foregrip. The paracord handle is camo colored and the thread wrapping is OD Green in color. These rods are available in 7’,8’,10; and 12’ available in both casting and spinning models. The appeal of the paracord handle is they have a lot of grip to them and and your hands will not slip when they get covered in catfish slime.
