folks, I'm not bragging...just thrilled! this evening, I caught my first fish on a fly...a small rainbow on a dry fly (March Brown?).

this was a LOOOONG time coming! When I was about 17 years old, I vowed I would SOMEDAY learn how to do this. (I'm 51 years old now).

lots more to learn, but...I'm in the game!

Congrats... the first of many. The first is typically the hardest... but always one of the most memorable.

Congratulations. Hopefully it's the first of many.

I'll second what Dc said, there's always something to learn.

Awesome - be sure to document all of your "firsts" even if it's here on PAFlyfish.
