You were being serious when you said you hadn't caught a trout? Or you haven't caught a trout on a fly you tied? Well 'grats either way. I think you and I need to hook up, maybe we can teach each other somethin'.

Well, I've caught trout when I used to spin cast, but I've only caught a few trout fly fishing, but that was my first on a fly that I had tied myself.

Dang that's a great feeling ain't it,plus a trout caught on your own fly is bigger than the same size trout caught on a fly some stranger tied.Its even better when the fly is tied with fur or feathers you got from the wild and not a store.Way to go dude!

Blue,
Congratulations! The feeling of catching fish on flies you tie never goes away. The 100th one is just as fun as the first one.

Blue,
Stick with it, you will catch one on the surface.

Man, I couldn't even catch one on a BHPT above Elkmont the other day...Not one. I think I'm going to need some guidance in the Smokey's. Rivers I have no problem with, but the Smokey's are kicking my butt and it ain't cheap for me to come up from Nashville!
