Default How did you feel?

How did you feel when you landed the first trout you caught using your own tied fly? I am pretty sure I would be very excited to know that my own tied fly does its job well.

Oh man, I was extremely excited! I think I was around 14 or so and my father had always done it for me, but I guess he decided it was time for me to do it myself, and I got a bite so quickly that it surprised both of us! Guess I did a good job

Great job! You must have tied a good fly that the trout (was it a trout?) stroke it so quickly. What fly did you tie, and what fish was it?

It was a dry fly, which I've usually preferred, and a brown trout, actually. It's too bad that I live so far from that pond now, I have many great memories there.

It was an exciting and gratifying experience that hooked me deeper into this hobby. Such remarkably joyous experience is one of the joys of living.

I can't wait to land my first trout with a fly that I tie! That will be the ultimate accomplishment from start to finish. I bet you were all pretty excited!
