Default back from a great weekend fishing

well friday i headed to Bennett Springs for a day or so of fishing and camping...had to leave early Sunday morning to get back so i could take my son who turned 2 today to his birthday party.......well it was a great weekend.....i got to the spring bright and early Saturday and got me a spot quick and started fishing.....there wasnt no where near as many people as i thought there was going to be since the weekend was going to be in the 60s and it was opening weekend as well.......so after a long morning and missing a few fish on a Wooley Buggar at around 2 i caught my FIRST EVER trout on a Fly rod..and on a fly that i tied myself at that...5 min later i caught another......i was tickled pink to say the least......it took me a long time to do it but it was way more than worth it.....fished for a few hours Sunday morning before i had to leave but didnt catch anything...had one hit and missed it...but oh well...over all it was a great weekend and i cant wait to go back..........im still learning but i was really pleased at how it came out.....didnt get any pictures as i forgot my camera but that wont happen again thats for sure

I'm glad you had a good time. My first trout was also on a wooly bugger. I'm also still new to this but have come along way since June last year. Still have a lot to learn but when you enjoy it like me you want to learn all you can to be better.

Luked: It makes it all the better that you caught that fish on one of your flies (regardless of the quality)!

Pretty cool Luked... I've only caught one trout this season, but that's what I keep going out for... keeps me addicted. The addition of catching those fish on your own fly make the event even more special.

it was a great weekend for sure....now its time to spend some time at the vise and get some more flies tied up...defnatly need a few more.....after i caught the 2 fish i never had another take all day...i dont know if it was jsut a fluke but to catch 2 pretty much back to back kind of told me to stick with that fly but the one i caught the 2 on i took off so i could keep it..first ones on one of my flies so didnt want to loose it...and the other red copper john i had i think was a little bigger in size so im not sure if that made a diffrence or not...so im gonna start tying in series and get 4-5 of each size so i have some more
