The 1st fish I can recall catching was an 8-9" bass from the farm pond near house.....on a spinning rod and worm. I was 6yrs old. The 1st trout I caught was on a salmon egg and spinning rod on fishing Creek in North-central Forks with my father in the rain. I got to stay home from school to go with him because his job was rained out. The 1st one hooked itself....the 2nd one I set the hook on. I was 7 and was wearing my 1st set of real hip-boots. The 1st fish I caught on a fly was in that same farm was a fat little Sunny...on a royal coachman. The 1st trout I caught on a fly....was a Nisqually River smolt in Washington State:^)
