    First fishing pole

    well, my first spin-caster that is my very own and not a hand me down, to be more specific.

    I'm excited. Got my license, a couple of fly's (the trout, they likey), sinkers, hooks, swivels and some powerbait for starters.

    Haven't ever fished for trout before. Back in TN the only thing I ever caught in the ponds on our property were Brim, pie, small-mouth bass and some big ole' cranky catfish.

    I think it'll be fun though. Those Golden's better watch their backs!

    NICE!

    pick up a couple of spinners for that rig. It's more active than just bottom fishing and more fun. Also, you'll catch way more fish than the fly fishing snobs so you'll get to have two kinds of fun

    Sweet.

    Go get some Rooster tails too, they slay the trouts.
    Since then it's been a book you read in reverse, so you understand less as the pages turn.
