Finally!!! I caught some fish. My first fish on a fly rod was caught today. I started on my home river, but with no luck for two hours, I decided to move to a tiny pond I have been fishing since I was a kid.

I bought some poppers today, and when I got to the pond, I tied on a yellow one. After about three or four casts, a bass hit and I reeled him in...which wasn't hard because he was only about 6 or 7 inches long. I caught another bass the same size and a sunfish. After that, I started loosing light and bats started swooping at my fly during my false casts, so I decided to call it a night. Not a great story, but at least after two months of getting skunked I finally caught a freakin fish.

Plus, catching anything on topwater is about the most fun you can have in my opinion.

Cheers,
MTG

Skunked, if you have any kind of boat, you should shoot down here some day and we can check out some lakes around here. I'm pretty sure they're all melted by now.
