My first brew I just dumped into the fermenter and it turned out just fine.
After I've finished cooling the wort in the boil kettle I stir the wort for a few minutes then let it sit for a while to let the hops settle out. Then I just siphon to the fermenter using my autosiphon, leaving the trub behind.

i thought you would want to aerate it more by dumping it in? No?

If you don't want to stretch a larger strainer over the fermenter, this works great for me. Same principal, but a gentle siphon is less likely (I may be wrong) to force residue through the mesh than a more forceful dump.

1 gallon Paint strainer from Lowes. 2 for $3.00
