    A #12 Wire Nymph soft hackle, it was a rainbow trout on a small stream just out of town.
    It was also one of the first few flies I learned to tie.

    Thev First Fly I caught a fish on was the first fly I tied. It was supposed to be a double humped Tom Thumb as I remember but when finished I just called it a Big Ugly. It was a size 12 I think and on my first cast i got my first fish!What luck I thought, but after numerous C&R i was hooked and have been a FF since. I still tie the Big Ugly and it always works. The commercial ones work too once they are beat up and take on the magical characteristics of the Big Ugly.lol

    Olive Bugger... Pacific Creek. Mid Day strip through a deep hole, have the picture someplace. The trout did make an impact but i have to say that my first steelhead really is what screwed me!

    I only remember that the fish was a rainbow, it was small and the fly was nondescript. Probably something that looked really good to me and who cares what the fish think. I may have bought a plastic bag full of them at the local sporting goods store. Three for $0.25 kind of flies.

    I do recall that it awoke an addiction in me that I have not been able to control for the last fifty years.

    I was 12 and running a double per grandpa’s instruction. I had a #16 royal stimulator on top with a #14 Joe Hopper on bottom. Joe got eaten by a 22” Montana Brown.
