After seeing the Thompson thread I thought to myself how someday I would like to shake hands with a Thompson steelie. I've heard the tales and the combination of the setting and the genetics of the fish make them sound special and therefore something id like to experience in my lifetime. All wild fish are special in my book and I'm thankful for every one of them regardless of location but I guess in my mind I have a few special fish on my to do list... I never fish the stilly for steelhead and to me a deer creek summer fish is at the top of my list. The history of the river makes those tough little survivors something worth cherishing. Maybe next year I can break outta the routine and try to rise one of those special fish. Right on the heels of that would be a wild skagit winter fish. Our season at this point is very limiting but the opportunity is there. That's another river that gets little effort from me maybe once a year, but every time I step into the flow I reminded why that river has captivated so many anglers over the years. Amazing river system! I'd love to hold one of those fish. Enough of me, curious what some of y'all have to say. What special fish do you wish to cross paths with someday? Whether its the location, or the technique or maybe just your first. Lets hear it!
