    First Fish on Fly - 14 Apr, 2021

    Went to the backyard to practice casting, and spotted some peacocks, I hooked a smaller one earlier but it broke me off in the grass, then hooked this guy twice but he spit it. Went inside for a while then hooked this guy again. I took this fight a lot slower and as soon as he was out of the weeds, I knew I had a really good chance and lead him to my neighbors dock. Didnt bring a net out with me, so I had to risk it and grab the leader. Just before I lipped him, the leader snapped, so I grabbed him around the body with both of my hands and dragged him on shore.

    Im still bad at casting, but after this, you can bet that Ill be practice every moment I can
