went out sunday with my dad and a friend for trout before the nascar race came on. the first spot we went there were rising ever where. so i run back to the truck for my fly rod. second cast with it i had a nice 15 in. run me all over and then came off. i then got in 2 nice browns. we left to go to a dam, which always has nice trout there. no trout rising so i but on a midge and bam. when i set the hook i know it was big after a long fight he gave up with one last run. this run ran me down the creek and in to shore, but we got him netted. a 20.5 in. & 4lb. brown trout on the fly rod. this is my first year of fly fishing i learned by myself (my dad help a little, but he don't fly fish ). no pics. i will post them after i get him mounted.

Sounds like it was a good day. I have always wanted to get into fly fishing just never took the time to learn it.
