    Well, technically not my first, but rather my second and third steelhead ever caught (and on the fly). I'm waiting on the pics of my first fish...

    To think that fishing steelhead as a kid with spoons (at least 70 days on the water) equated to no fish, but I'd get into Steelhead on my first trip out with a fly rod?

    Wow. Fished with Sean from Silver Bow in Spokane and was visited briefly by Steelhead guru/bad A Tom Larimer for a bit (he was there when I got my first fish). Great times. I'm now a Steelhead addict of sorts.

    Full report + more pics on my blog tomorrow. Tight Lines!

    Nice work. I have yet to do any steelhead fishing in eastern washington. Might have to give it a try one of these days.

    Wow three fish on your fist trip. I'm not sure it gets better than that.

    Yeah, it was a fish a day. Two days were spent out of a boat and the other from the bank. I know it's not normally that successful, but hot damn does it make me want more.

    Sweet! Despite low dam numbers this season seems to be a good one so far. Nice work!
