Thread: I'm hooked!!

  1. Default I'm hooked!!

    I have my Fly Rod for about 4 weeks now and have been anxious to catch something "legitemate". I finally landed a good size fish. I caught a 14 inch smallmouth in the Susquehanna river. This is my third trip to the river with the fly rod. First 2 trips resulted in a few small bass - 10" or so each time. This one was worth remembering. I really got into this before I caught this one, now for sure I'm hooked. I caught it on a wooly bugger.

    Nice going! It doesn't take long to get hooked into flyfishing! Just a lot of fun and depending on how deep you want to go, so much to learn! Congrats!

    Hi Surfin,

    Congratulation's on that smallie. What are the conditions on the Susquehanna these days? I think there were some pollutions problems I heard about and the fish populations were down. Maybe I am mistaken.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
