My First Blue Trout

by Ashton Chatelain
(Bluffdale, Utah)

I had to try really hard to land a fish but I finally managed to catch a nice colorful rainbow.

This is the fly I caught my first fish on with the blue TenkaraBum yarn.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin

"Study to be quiet." - Izaak Walton 1653

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
