My First Fish!!!

My First Fish!!!

I bought the Iwana 12' rod not too long ago and some of your orange hi visibilty level line along with other essentials, and was ready to try fly fishing for the first time. I went with my brother and a friend who fish with the standard western fly fishing set up, but they gave me some pointers and let me try. So the method I tried was nymphing with eggs and weight and a indicator (same set up my brother and friend had), and to my suprise I CAUGHT A FISH (12" RAINDOW)!!! It was fairly easy to land and though the rod had a pretty good bend in it, I never thought it was going to break. Overall the experience was great, and the rod was fantastic! I can't wait to try again!

"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.
