Not exactly the normal fly-rod catch. But the first none the less. Was at Sinclair this weekend. Gave the 5wt. a test.

Congrats on that funny lookin trout!
Is that the Hobbs Creek combo thats on sale at Bass Pro that you have in your mouth?

You're lucky. It's tough to catch a cat on a fly rod even when you target them. Great job and welcome to fly fishing.

Thanks Jubal. I thought it was going to be easy, but I was wrong.
Walt, yep that is the HC on sale at bps. Seems fine to me, but I dont know enough about this to compare it to any other's

Congrats on your first catch with the long rod-I'm sure it was fun. I've catch a few cats on flies before and am surprised everytime-one time I even got a saltwater cat!
