    there's a reason they call it fishing, not catching

    It will catch fish. My first fly looked like a bird crapped it out and I caught a 26 inch 6lb 6oz Rainbow the day I first took that fly out to fish. I lost it long ago and wish I still had it. I would copy it and keep tying those flies like that.

    Well, it does catch fish: three nice cutthroats, on an intermediate line I then tried some wet flies (tandem size 12 and size 14) and they did just as well
    So I guess the trout were hungry and would have taken anything that looked edible ... Nice thing is it didn't put them off. So we'll call it a success

    Congratulations on your first fly!!!

    Now that it has caught fish, I suggest you put that fly and save it. I wish I still had the first fly I tied.

    You will become much better at tying and it good to know where you started.
    Regards,
