I know this feeling. After I had gained some experience with smallies and panfish, a friend began taking me to a great trout stream. The first two times we went, I quickly lost every fish I hooked (maybe 4 altogether). I went home, looked at my new reel, and discovered I had overloaded it, so that fish couldn't pull any line out. I fixed it, and promptly caught some trout.

You'll become comfortable before you know it, and the clumsy early outings will be completely worthwhile.
