Royal Wulff, Provo River, Utah
I don't know if the "W" word is acceptable but when necessary I believe the term "Garden Hackle" is okay.
A renegade on a little lake in the Colville NF in eastern WA. I still love that fly. It's a great attractor for rainbows.
14 Olive Scud - Black Butte Ranch pond in Central Oregon back in '97. Had no friggin clue what I was doing.
A Royal Coachman--Kootney river below Nelson
Hares Ear on Trillium Lake near Mt Hood on a stocker rainbow.
Brown bugger with a red tail in Lake Mamie, Mammoth Lakes.
Black Carey special on a lake in the Potholes. The small sizes were maybe mistaken for a chironomid, which I didn't have a clue what that was back then.
Prince Nymph on the Bogachiel river in July, 8-10" trout.
Some non-descript cheap wet fly I got out of mix of flies at a local sporting goods in my hometown in PA kinda like what I've seen in Big 5 Sports. Caught a 10" small mouth bass in Sherman's Creek in South Central PA and was happy as could be.
I think it was called a Drunken Crab.Crazy Crab? Anyway, caught a surf perch off the beach in front of the Del Coronado Hotel on Coronado Island, San Diego.
First trout was caught on a deer hair beetle on the Kaweah River in Sequoia Nat'l Park.
The first fly I used that I caught my first fly rod fish on was an Orvis Jassid that I tied from a Orvis fly tying kit.
Wow u tied they fly u caught ur first fish on?
Size 16 Yellow Palmer. Little River, Smoky Mountains, Tennessee. A fat brown trout scarfed it up as the fly drifted past a rock in the middle of the river. I'll never forget that take!
