First trout on the long rod

Spent some time camping up at the Grand Mesa this past week and one afternoon we decided to go after cutthroats. This summer has been the first summer that I've ever tried fly fishing and after a short time of fishing at this lake on the mesa i hooked up with a nice 15 inch cutthroat on a fly i tied myself. Although I didn't catch many fish on that trip I still had a great time using the fly rod.
Sorry about the odd picture, I was looking at the fish and not at the camera.

Thanks everyone for the responses. I'm pretty proud of my first capture on the long rod. The adrenaline rush you get from that bite on the fly is like non other. Can't wait to get out there and catch more.
