Looking back my first trout on a fly...

So I'm working on some new looks for this blog. In the process, I wanted a picture of me catching a trout on my fly rod. There is only one time that was recorded, when I caught my first trout on a fly. You see my parents were visiting us. This was my wife's first year fishing. While we were fishing, my wife got hung up on a rock. So I put on my waders to retrieve her lure. Afterwards, I noticed that the fish were feeding on the surface... my fly rod was in the back of the truck... So I said what the heck. I tied on a grasshopper, and tossed it out onto the lake. Pretty soon, I had my first fish hooked. He took to the air twice, each time jumping higher than me it seemed.

Fish On
Get the net ready!

Netting the fish; my nephew coming over to check it out.

My First Fish/Trout on a fly
Looking back that day, it was quite interesting. My Mom was sitting by the lake reading. My nephew was casting a marshmallow but didn't have the patience to let it sit for the trout to find it. My wife rushed down to the lake the quickest. Caught a fish before any of us were even rigged up. My grandfather was also there, enjoying the scenery that day mostly he stayed in the shade of my parent's van though.

That was the only fish I'd catch that day. That also happened to be the last time my wife has caught a fish. The following summer we didn't go fishing much as she was pregnant with our daughter. And this past summer, it was hard to get away with our beautiful daughter around to go fishing. Hence, my fishing trips are mostly on week days now.

Overall, everytime I view these pictures it brings back great memories from that day, and that fish is one I'll never forget. He was a stocker, but he had some fight and led to a very fun day on the lake.

Tight Lines,
Paul
