    went to the Mad River Sunday got out there about 5:00 pm, on the water about 5:30, saw a few rises, so we wade over to a sewage output, (guess it is really clean) few bites, then we move down, I GOT ONE... it jumps out of the water pops off ! wade a bit more i finally get one landed! yea, my first fish on the fly. the guy that took me has been fly fishing since he was 12 years old, he was in his late 40's, early 50's, and he said u have to be fly fishing as long as i have to know how good i did Sunday. so i was really happy. well any ways, nothing big but it is a trout, Brown Trout. here is the pic.

    Try drifting buggers, or tossing streamers.

    Congrat's on your first fish on a fly! It only took one on a fly to convert me. I have yet to go back to a spin/bait casting rod.

    During this time of the year, I like using Sneaky Petes. Smallies love them. They float on the surface, so you can see the fish come in out of nowhere and smash the fly. :D Lots of fun!

    Tight lines!
