Around a 12'' rainbow on a size 12 olive woolly bugger. When in doubt throw a bugger.

WoW" the first time i went flyfishing. I fished for 3-4hrs casting, I think i tied on every dry fly in the box.In the end i was walking back up river like a wiped dog, I didn't know i was draging my fly throuh the riffles, and wam i felt the fish jump, man he was about 4" long if that. But i tell you i felt better catching him than any fish i ever couth. It was the start of a great passion. Buy the way the fly was a small elkhair caddis.

A funny little white marabou jig head thing-- size 8. 14" stocker bow in a lake-- don't pursue the stockers in the local lake much, anymore... Haven't looked for a trout in 2 years.

they actually just stocked again a last week (I think...)--might have to give 'er another shot, soon.

//edit/// and Neal, I once caught a fruit bat with a mosquito pattern... :biggrin (no joke. took my back cast-- I don't know if I 'caught' him or just happened to 'snag' him during presentation cast.... didn't strip him in to find out, just cut the fly line-- not worth risking whatever disease those nasty things harbor....)

More than 40 years ago I worked a couple of summers at a Boy Scout camp as a counselor, and for a couple of weeks one of my jobs was to help take scout troops on a 4 day float trip down the Current river - started just below Missouri's Montauk State Park. I caught my first trout on my first fly rod/reel that summer on an olive wooly bugger (size? - who knows); cooked it over an open campfire and ate it for dinner - absolutely delicious! (beat the heck out of the dehydrated stuff the scouts were eating!)

First fish on a fly was a 12 inch rainbow on a muddler minnow swinging in the current on the snake river in Idaho. First fish on a fly I tied was a 16 inch rainbow on the Truckee caught on a wooly sculpin (a wooly bugger with rabbit zonker wings). I have a picture of this one on the wall. The original muddler minnow rides in my fishing hat.
