  1. Default Finally First Trout!

    Merry Christmas everyone!
    You all helped me with some good advice back at the end of summer for getting started into flyfishing.
    Busy schedule this fall with school but yesterday caught my first fish on a fly....2 Rainbows. I have caught probably hundreds on my ugly stick spin combo over the years, and many of them bigger than the 2 yesterday. But this was the most fun I have EVER had fishing....such a rush and much more satisfying.
    Hopefully the snow will continue to stay up in the mts and I can get out again next week.
    Of course, I didn't think to bring a camera to capture the moment, but I'll rememer it forever.
    Thanks everyone for helping me get off on the right foot. I'm learning a whole lot by following your posts on here.
    Enjoy the holidays and Happy New Year, as well!
    -Rob

    Outstanding!! You may find it difficult to justify picking up the ugly stick for trout again. Not that the fly rod is more productive, just that somehow, for me at least, the time and experience of fly fishing is more valuable, deeper and more satisfying.

    First of many I'm sure. Happy holidays!

    Rob- Contrats on your first fly rod trout. I agree it is much more satisfying and in my experience much more productive to boot. You will never forget those two fish.
