Default Caught my first fish on the fly!

Hey guys. I'm a college student in Louisville, KY and just picked up a fly rod on Wednesday. Went out last night and I was awful. Woke up early this morning before class and after about an hour saw great improvement. I caught this bass on a Wooly Bugger at a Cherokee Lake here in Louisville.

I'm officially addicted.

I hope the picture shows!

Hi mauijim,

Thanks for sharing your photos. The first fish on a fly rod is always a big event.

welcome to the forum, that looks like a nice chunky fish.

Great job- that didn't take long to get your first on a fly. Way to go.

Wow! Great fish! Beats the 6" brook trout that was my first fish. Beware, though the addiction will take all your money.
