Went out this morning in search of the last Summer Steel. After landing the 1st of the day Bigdog loaned me his flyrod. I landed this one a few hrs later. This is my 1st on a flyrod and yes it was spooling me 2.:lol: After having my finger slammed by the reel handle a couple times I learned quick:lol:. I have to say that was fun and a different experience. Looks like I may buy another rod:shock:. Thanks Bigdog for my 1st On The Fly! That was a blast!

couple of REAL NICE fish... i have never used a red karabiner fly before, but, that hookup looks like it had no chances of escaping.

Awesome! I have only ever had my knuckles busted once, shortly before tightening up, and losing the fish.

I look forward to getting them busted up again though.

Wow, excellent job! Those fish look great.

Are you sure you weren't a fly guy in a previous life? ;)

Nice fish! I just inherited my grandpa's old flyrod and am excited to try fly fishing myself!
