    10 years damn i had mine in 10 days. Awesome fish, checked off the list?? does that mean ur done fishing for them? the trend seems to be once u catch one, u just throw away the whole list because its game over for other species.

    And that's how the real addiction begins . . . two creatures get hooked. Well done & congrats!
     
  4. I think its just the beginning of the insanity. I can't get out of my mind the take, fight and landing such a beautiful creature. Must catch more...

    Congrats on your first fish! Those are nice pics too. I was a changed man after my first steelhead, and not in a good way ;) Once you get a taste of that special sauce, you just want more.
