That's the spirit. I like the way you think. My knots are unbreakable. So strong I can't lose a fish. Or catch one.

Great job to you and to Zeeee!! Posts like this are my favorite part of NGTO. It was really nice to meet you both and hear the story first hand. Success will come incrementaly at first and then it will come exponentially as long as you're able to keep working on it which I believe you will since the look on your face in the parking lot pretty much said you're already just as hooked on it as the rest of us.
I'd been watching the heron in the background of the 2d pic as y'all moved upstream and was thinking y'all were going to get one in that area.
One piece of advice is get some polarized sunglasses, even its just the cheap ones from Walmart that clip over your regular glasses. They will completely change how you see the river.

I was actually thinking about that while on the river. I wear contacts whenever I feel like putting them in, so finding a cheap pair would be beneficial. I was definitely struggling to see where I was stepping when the big white clouds were reflecting off the water.

Thanks! I'll look into a pair on amazon right now.

Awesome stuff! I knew it'd happen sooner than later! Props for not quitting early and being dedicated. It was around 3 years ago I was in the same place.

I'm stubborn to the very core of my bones! When I first started spin fishing for trout, I would go multiple times per week and catch nothing. I could not land a thing. By the next summer, I was catching 10-20 trout from the shoreline whenever I went.

I plan to make that a reality when fly fishing. I know I'm not going to catch big numbers for a few months probably, but being out in nature and on the water is a much better experience than sitting in bed all day (though I still occasionally do that, man needs sleep).

Edit: Ordered those polarized glasses.

Thanks guys, I have no desire to stop fishing any time soon. Though I might have to take a few days break, my wrist is killing me.

Oh I know. I've had them swoop down for my fish before. I keep an eye out
