RE:First trout on a fly?
Still mourning the passing of my father in law but what better way to improve my mood than to relive my first trout on a fly. It was a brown trout taken on a #10 Haystack on the Ausable in New York. It was about 13" and probably a holdover fish (maybe even wild) judging by its perfectly curved and pointy fins. I fumbled around trying to get a half decent cast upstream. He missed (or maybe I missed) the first whack, but he came back and he was mine. I almost swang it across the road on the hook set <g> That's got to be over 20 years ago... late seventies, and remember it as if it was yesterday.
