My first catch with a fly rod. A real whopper, right? I think I need more practice.

That's a good setup at least you got box of flies, they can be expensive after you start losing 2 or 3 a day. The Roll Cast is a very good technique to cast without back casting it takes sometime to get use to it but it safes you time. Joe I know how you feel about launching the fish out of the water it always happends with those little ones. Personally it's a lot more rewarding catching a fish on a fly. Congrat's on your 1st fish!

There is a company called Wild Water Fly Fishing that had decent starter sets. The rod is 9 ft and between a 5 and 6 weight. It came with a set of flies, fly box, extra leaders and tippet material. Lifetime warranty. I was tempted to get an Orvis, but wanted to start with something basic before I invested in something more serious. Casting is still awkward for me so far, but it's really interesting. When I can get to the point where I can present a fly more often than untangling it from the branches behind me, I think I'll really enjoy it. Believe it or not, the chub was actually good training for the reflexes because it was such a low key strike. The only problem was that I launched it into the air when I set the hook. The leverage on that long of a rod takes some getting used to.
