    No romantic story, just explicit porn pictures.

    Crossed one off the bucket list.

    Congrats on getting the first. Now get after some chrome. It's not over-rated among discriminating fishermen. Keep on keeping on.

    Next on the bucket list, it has to be a Chinook. I brought the 2-hander on my trip but the water was too small. So a Chinook on the fly and a steelhead on the swing.

    I landed 4 kings this year on the fly, all were incidental while fishing for other species. The one I landed in the salt was small, but a Lynch so I great surprise. The other three were all while steelheading, they were big and doggity and again worth the surprise. Good luck to you and the next check mark.

    Great first steel and best of luck on the nookie. Try estuary patterns (investigate BC fly forum) but my favorite pattern is Blair's Baiter, designed by the late Blair Alexander a very great guy. Hit the north end beaches hard late July to mid Aug.

    Very nice. Not that it matters, but what fly did you take it on?

    As Trapper said above, now you can hang it up and move on.
    Bucket list check off.

    Yeah, like that will happen any time soon.
