Fish: Rainbow Trout

First Rainbow On Fly Rod

Post By: Lloyd Tackitt      Posted: 12/31/2013 6:43:36 AM     Points: 18748    
I caught my first ever rainbow trout on a fly rod, a stocked trout to be sure, but it was still a blast. About 10 inches long, not big, but pretty as hell and a decent fighter. This was on the Paluxy River in Glen Rose.

Hey congrats Lloyd! My first river fish was a 6 inch brownie, but it was still enough to get me hooked. (sorry for the terrible pun) Now I throw that long rod around everywhere...

Thanks! It was definitely a great moment. Those "First's" are always fun.

I love firsts of a species. Part of the reason I love fishing Texas salt, so many creatures I've never seen before. Loved my first ladyfish.

Lloyd, anytime you need a serious trout fix, come on up to my neck of the woods, best spring through fall, as hard water makes for difficult fly fishing. You're welcome to stay at my place, you're own room and private bath. Meals aren't all bad, as I didn't get fat by not eating. We may have to negociate liquor cabinet access however.

I'm going to take you up on that after I retire! Man, hit me where it hurts...liquor restrictions...dam.
