First Fish on Dry Fly EVER (video)

I caught my first dry fly fish ever this past weekend on Kettle Creek. I was originally using an olive bugger but noticed when I was fishing this one pool for about 10 minutes there were a couple of risers. I'm pretty new to fly fishing so I didn't really know what hatch was going on.

I tied on a elk hair caddis and didn't get any strikes for about 10 minutes. I then tied on a size 16 BWO. About 4 or so casts in a nice rainbow about 11 or 12 inches smacked it. Felt awesome to get my first dry fly catch on video.

Awesome. I caught my first fish on a dry today as well. A 12" Brown on an Elk Hair Caddis on West Valley Creek. Didn't see anything rising but there was a lot of bug action tonight. Slid in the water behind a nice pool that holds fish and he nailed it almost as soon as it hit the water.

Congratulations to both of you. Not much beats seeing that rise and hearing that immediate "ssssssip" sound when you set the hook.

Nice catch! Like I tell my newbie nephews, "Dry fly fishing is nature's video game".
