Another First Fish!!

Blacksmith Fork

A couple weeks ago I fished the Blacksmith Fork, a local river in Cache Valley, with my brother in law and his friend Chase Wood.  We hit the river really early picking up a few fish right off the bat.  We hit some deeper holes as we moved up river and my bro-in-law hooked into a fish, we landed it he said it was his first fish ever.  I did a double take because I couldn’t believe it.  I have taking him fishing before and was for sure that he had landed a fish or two but he said he hadn’t.  This was the second time in the past few months that I have been with someone for their first fish.  It is an awesome experience to see the look and expressions on ones face when they get that first fish.

The whole day was a great success landing some great trout and some of the biggest white fish I have ever seen.

    I’ve got a special place in my heart for those little browns. My first fish was just like that little guy in the picture and I was so happy I just about kissed him.

    I fished the Blacksmith Fork about a month ago and landed a few little browns. I love that they are so small but so full of fight. I’ve had more fun catching some of those small trout than some of the bigger ones. They’re just so darn cute 😀

    I know what you mean. When a beginner lands their first fish they “glow” all day long! I wish more people (especially those in the indsutry) would take new people fly fishing and walk them through their first gear purchases.

    Congrats Jess ! I am also so grateful for Chase cause he is the only link to a family (Wood) to carry on as the 7th generation of fly fisherman. Great job guys and thanks to Fly Fishing Frenzy. :) “Pa Wood”
