Default First day fly fishing!

Well as some know i bought my first fly rod a few weeks ago and i got it strung it yesterday. So today i went out to lake james in north carolina. I figured i would get use to the rod in the lake before i go hit the rivers. And boy did i have a good time!! I reeled in 7 fish now all of them were just perch but my gosh is a fly rod a blast to use! Its amazing to catch something on a fly and pull the line in! For sure am addicted now and cant wait to hit the streams and catch some trout!

It's a great feeling isn't it? Catching fish the first time out is a bonus. It will be interesting to follow your progress, hope you'll keep us updated! milt.

Thanks guys! And i for sure will keep yall posted. Next weekend i will be going on a 6 hour canoe ride with my gfs dad. I dont know how much i will get to use a fly because the water moves real quick but i will post pictures of what i catch.

And the boz funny story about the gar! In a family pond my gfs dad was fishing for bass and he said he was casting out and he looked down and there was a gar staring at him about 2 foot off shore! He said before he could do anything the fish was gone. Now a few weeks later there was a little boy fishing the pond and he caught the gar! But he thought it was a monster and beat it to death with a stick!:banghead: Hahaha.

Congrats, nothing like feeling a decent bend in a fly rod, thats is what hooked me - it is so much cooler than anything I ever felt on a spinning rod.
