Well it finally happened, the clouds parted and it was a miracle. I finally got a fish on a fly rod. Sure he maybe tiny, but you have to start somewhere. Hopefully, they will get bigger from this point on. He bit a size 8 woolly bugger. I had a few more strikes and a few close calls the rest of the day. Now all the time and money I spent seems worth it. This is a great sport.
Well I guess a big con graduations is in order. That is great that you got your first fish. If you are going after pan fish you might consider something like the flies below. Bluegill really like things with legs like a spider.
