    Hi Mac,

    Great job. At your young age there will be many days ahead with many more fish. Your catch rate will go up with some practice.

    Try not to get too excited and don't horse the fish. It is great that you are analyzing each catch. Keep track in your mind what you did right or wrong and grow that knowledge.

    Thanks for the picture.

    Mac- congrats on the fish. If you still have it, I always recommend retiring the fly you caught your first fish on--- it'll give you some fond memories to look back on when you're old and gray like me.
