I've decided to teach myself to fly fish. My wife is away for work for the next 3 months, which leaves me a great deal of free time, so I figure what better time to learn. So far the only practice I've had is casting in the yard.

Today the weather was nice, so I threw the rod and some flies in a backpack and I was on my way.

First stop Duncan Creek in Chippewa Falls

Couldn't find any fish at the first stop. Bummer.

I did find this cool bridge while looking for spots though

Next stop is the Rod and Gun Club park in Eau Claire. I was told the ponds here are stocked with rainbows.

Forgot to get a picture of the pond, as I was too busy trying not to look like a fool flailing my line around. Missed a few fish, and finally caught this guy

Woohoo first trout ever on a fly rod. Put up an excellent fight too.

Missed one more then called it a day. Got to get better at not leaving so much slack out. Oh well, I'm pleased with my first time out.
Be happy today.
