A Fun Steelhead that made me swim

    My Dad and I were out with several guys fishing for steel last month. We decided to each take a side of the river and move up a bit. Didn't know it but his new digital camera took video too - fish were off the bite but switched up the set-up and finally hooked into a hatchery by going DEEP. At 2:20 in the video, I try to pull her out a little early and drop her back in...whoops, fly comes unbuttoned. Wanted to do my part and get the hatchery's out of the system so I had to go in for a quick swim to recover. Awesome memory with my Dad.
