Default first fish on a fly i made!

its a beautiful spring day (my part of texas only has three seasons, spring, summer, and a whole two/four weeks of winter)! and i landed a beautiful under one pound bass (average for the pond i fish at) with a fly I MADE MYSELF!

the fly i made i'm calling a Samuel Lewis Slider, after my pops for the lure i hope to go for when i need assurance, and of course his whitening and black hair! (if it has another name please tell me, so i can give the person who made it the respect they deserve for their fly)

here are pics:

the first one is the pond where we fish... and because of all the trees, i fished off to the left at the point where it comes out a little and threw at angles to avoid the trees:

i will have pics up of the fly as soon as it is dry!
just thought i'd share with you guys! you've guys helped me since i got my first pole from a flea market! thank you all for your support! i'm retiring this version of the fly as peregrines always recommends to look to the future so you can remember your past!


See photos in post below. MickyBob365, please do not post photos that pushes the right side of the Portal Page off of the screen.

Good work, good idea to save that fly it will bring back a lot of memories.
Always a lot nicer when you catch a fish on something you tied!

Great job Mike. That's a heck of a fly and a great catch. Nice going, I bet that fish was a blast.

Your pops must have gotten a kick out of that fly too.

Glad to hear you've gotten into tying. Looking forward to seeing some of your creations.

Great fly Mike. Looks like it pushes a lot of water and has a lot of action. Nice job. Looking forward to more of your creations.
