Default I've caught my first fish on a fly.

There is no picture as the fish isn't one that I could legally catch here but none the less was great to finally catch one. It was a 7'' salmon par. It took a #6 woolly bugger. Then 1 week later I caught 2 bass in the same spot (80' behind my house) I am officially hooked now. Next summer I will be hunting the legen...........what for it...........dary Muskie on a fly. Thanks for all the help so far ladies and gents and look forward to more fish stories for you.

Thanks. I love being able to wake up in the morning and fish for an hour or so before heading to work then get in 30 mins at lunch and another 1-3 hours after work. If nothing else I am getting lots of casting practice.
