Re: First flyfishing trip. Lessons Learned.
Where did you fish? They sure didnt follow the schedule which was good if you were an early bird. Sounds like you had a good day, right now there's a lot of fish in the river. Get yourself a rubber basket fishing net, they're other nets that are cheaper but rubber is easier on the fish. Your wind knots are from casting technique. Most of the time just lifting your pole is enough to set the hook, sure you have to be quick at times but you'll get the feel for it. I'll pm you some water links later. Im hoping maybe later in the week I can go.
