Bill, Congratulations! . . . and welcome to the club. It's a serendipitous sport, this thing called steelheading. I've been at it over 30 years, caught more fish than I could count, and spent the whole 3 day weekend casting my arm off, with only one decent src to show for it, not a single steelhead strike that I was fishing for. You just never know. Now get back out there for the next one! Sincerely, Salmo g.
