Default I did it finally!!!

so today i woke up around 12 still beat from a super late night at work and headed out to the river. i get the parking lot and DOH! i left my sunglasses at work so im going to be blind the whole day. i walk down the river for about 45 min and start working my way upstream with my elk hair caddis. right off the bat im getting hits on it! cant hook any of them so i keep moving up. well after about 45 min i get one!!! it was this little guy

after i caught that one i pretty much just walked upstream and casted, if something hit cool but i was done fishing. had a GREAT day finally catching something on dry flies. i think my problem was that i had to much slack in my line, the big fish that i caught i felt it pull the fly down back into the water where i had never felt that before. i think i know kinda what i need to do now and look forward to catching many more on my dries.
