    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!

    Right on bro! Tightlining is fun and effective plus you can swing with the same setup. I think I will be adding to the article in short order to expand on some topics.

    I drew a blank this weekend as well... need me some more metal.

    Congrats Bill, I've yet to ding a steelhead on the fly. But have to admit I have'nt put in the time either. As soon as I saw your "kitchen" pics I knew someone would feel inclined to comment. Some people just can't let a guy have his day. Hope you enjoyed the meal. :thumb:
