Red face bull red on a fly!

i went out thursday night to 3mile bridge with one goal in mind to catch a red on my fly rod. ive been seeing alot of reds on the surface the past couple times i have been out there. the night started off calm and there were a couple of reds swimming on top but i couldnt get them to eat my fly, they would follow it but not eat. the wind started to pick up and more reds started to show up. i had one hit my fly and run for about 10 seconds then it spit the hook. a while later i hooked a beast and fought him for about 25 minutes till i seen him( he looked to be 37 or bigger) but right at the yak he tail whipped and broke me off. I was about to give up but i tied a new fly on and went back at it first red i saw, i threw the fly at him and he nailed it. he put up a good 15 min fight. he kept trying to go to the pillings but with the hobie i was able to steady peddle him away and keep his head turned. awesome fight and THIS WAS MY FIRST FISH EVER ON A FLYROD!!!!!!!

Congrats!

My first fish on a fly rod was also a redfish, but only 15 inches. Cut me some slack though I was only 8.
