Default Look At Me

Look at me, for I am the original iron jawed brass mounted copper bellied corpse maker from the wilds of Northern Arkansas.

Ohh by the way, I caught my first trout today on a fly rod and they were on a fly that I tied, 4 brooks and a rainbow.

Bow low and spread your arms gentlemen for ye stand in the presence of he who shalt cast his fly into the cold depths and compel thee slimy brethren to impel thou self upon thine barbed siren.

I can't thank each of you enough for your patience and experienced answers to my questions. I can hear your laughter though at creating another addicted fly fisherman.

PS: Will I need a license to start guiding? kidding...lol

Dave

Yes li'l Dave, you will need a lic. to guide. But wait six months or so, till you have it all down. Lol
Good job, you are now an official member of FFishers anonymous.
Not because you caught fish on a fly, but because you have seen beyond the normal limitations of most fishers/fish, by catching them on flies you tyed.
Have fun with it, and report back.
It's part of your therapy, and mine...

Default Re: Look At Me

Hey! That's the way I used to announce each trout to my wife. She started taking things too seriously, so I only say stuff like that after every other fish...LOL!

Good job on both counts! I do like to tie my own flies, and haven't used any others in over 5 years.

Here I thought you already were catching them and never realized that you had not until I read this thread. I remember how proud I was of the same accomplishment and can still share your excitement even as the time has long past since the day.

One of the things that sets fishing with your flies apart from any other activity I've ever been part of is that it is new every time. Every day is different, every stream river and creek is different, nothing is ever the same. You may occasionally think it is but that's when you start to notice the intrinsics of nature even more.

I won't launch into a hard core Zen like pontification but I was getting started, how bout if I just say .........that's cool Dave

Congratulations on two levels: for catching your first trout on your own flies and for having a most excellent sense of humor.
