RE:First trout on a fly?
Poor me, first fish on the fly was a little little... The thing was only about 4 inches. Still it was caught by a ten year old version of me. The fly was a sherry spinner, fished wet. It was my first time with a fly rod so the fact that I was drowning dries was not surprising. What was was catching a fish. The hungry thing burst out of the water after it! I had let the line drift all downsttream so that I was fishing with no style, not wet nor dry, and the wake the fly caused when the fly swung up to the top and around changed that beautiful baby trout into deadly killer.
It was beautiful, gorgeous red spots, a little wild gem. That was April 1983, my first day flyfishing, my first on the fly. I'd love to do that day again.
No angler, no matter how good, can catch a fish everytime, but then no fish, no matter how cunning, can resist a fly everytime...
