  1. I caught my first steelhead a 23 inch buck at 11:00 pm
    on the lyre river.I caught it on a hand tied chartuse fly
    with some glow in the dark materiels tied in it.When my fly stoped half way down the pool next to are campsite I went to set the hook on a nother rock but my fly went
    upstream then the 23 inch steelie jumped 4 times wich my familie thought i had fallen into the water but it was my steelhead going crazy.After a crazy fight i landed the fish
    and snaped a ton of pictures.

    P.S. see ya on the river, that was my second steelhead trip.I had seen a couple steelies earlier that day but the rafters and swimers spook the crap out of the fish so i tried it at night and it payed off. C&R
