    I can't remember my first fish on a fly. It might of been a dragon fly nymph being pulled behind a boat on a spinning rod. But then again I don't really remember?????????????????????

    My first, was on some dry fly I found in my grandpas old tackle box. Me and my brother tied it to a mono line that we had tied to a broken vine maple branch. We were fishin in this little creek that feeds into the Stilly through my dads property.

    Great job! I got mine on a Royal Coachman with the wing behind the hackle on the North Fork Stilly. Always awsome to caught a fish on a fly, even now.

    Welcome and congratulations.

    That is a fine fish.

    My first was a small cuttie that smaked a small elk hair caddis dry fly.

    I still love the Elk Hair Caddis, and just last year re-discovered the joys of fishing small moving water for small cutties on the EHC or other small dry flies.

    Congrats! Hope you don't have any other hobbies (passions?).

    Elk hair caddis, fishing in a June snow storm by myself in central B.C. Caught fish nearly every cast. Even caught one on a back-cast.

    Poor Fella,
    He's "hooked"! He'll be reading articles on fly fishing, buying new equipment, finally believing he must have a $600 fly rod, $300 reel, and $35,000 SUV. He'll be in debt with this new hobby for years.

    Congrats. Its a great hobby.

    Keith

    Nice work fella! You will never be able to be next to water with out thinking about where your gear is. Hopefully you come prepared or deal with regret well.

    Black Wooly Bugger here! Goose Lake down by Mt. Adams in one of those $10 kiddie row boats...

    The good news is that I'm still single!
    The Bad News is that I'm single.

    Hobbys?

    Not if you count:

    Shooting Sporting Clays
    Shooting Skeet
    Rifle Shooting
    Small Bore Rifle Shooting

    Big Game Hunting
    Varmint Hunting
    Predator Hunting
    Upland Game Hunting

    Fishing,
    Trout
    Salmon
    Walleye
    Northern Pike

    I might just as soon start flyfishing. Its cheaper than shooting.


    I stopped parachuting and extreme Mountain Biking.
