Congratulations

Hi
You have just caught your first large-mouthed bass on a fly and joined a cadre of truly obsessed people. We can go from looking like eager children on Christmas Eve to sullen wet Zombie like creatures in a few short hours. But I have to admit itís all worth it and Iím sure that youíll make a good new addition to the fly caught damned.
Welcome and good luck
Shadfreak aka Larry

today we went out! we caught fish only late at night. almost lost a fly! i even took of the waders and swam in 10 foot deep water to get my fly back. haha. guess i am crazy. i am happy tho. at 1st during the day we caught one bluegill (cousin) and one chub (me). later tho at 8:00 we started to bang um! ,my cousin caught 23 bass/gills with a beaded hares ear tan. and then i used a prince nymph to bang 6 or 7 fish. all gills except for a rock bass or smallie? (red eyes but like a smallie with no black band) and yes believe it or not a 2 or 3 pound cat!!! oh yes!!! and on a prince nymph! this baby took my line into the reel and made about 5 or 6 great runs! nothing over 20 yards or so but this got me the feel for the hard hittin steelies! i tried to take a pic only to realize my phone wasn't in my pocket! but after i realeased i notice its in my other freakin pocket!!~! . but oh well i took a brain picture instead lol. wish i could of took the pic! another thing about fly fishing i like i had my one gill swallow my hook only to pop it out like nothing with my forceps! i have never had a fish die from swallowing the hook. to me thats awesome! i am not about harming anything i am not gonna eat. well keep ya posted! i should prolly make another post! its not my 1st fish anymore lol.
