I caught my first Rio with my fly rod and a 1/80th handtied jig [Linked Image]
I am very new to fly fishing unlike pot licker who has been at it since i got her a fly rod for her bday last year. We are both beginner's and still have technical difficulties roflmao yes it is possible to backlash a fly reel [Linked Image]
But we are slowly getting the hang of it [Linked Image]

This has opened up a whole new world for us and i am excited to see what this new way of fishing has instore.

Well done. Looks like a pretty stretch of river you are fishing. Fly fishing is great fun and you get to enjoy some pretty good battles from fish that you hook.

WOW, that's a dandy. Watch out now your going to get hooked on fly fishing and will turn out like J-Moe, never to touch a non fly pole again. Been there, done that and is one heck of an addiction to break. roflmao

Thank you curt0407 for tge reply. The west prong is a beautiful river and your right about the fight. Seems they fight harder on a fly rod. boxing
