    The mighty steelhead has humbled me once again... 8 hours 5 miles of hiking 1 hook up, I guess thats better than this spring when I spent 5 days in petersburg and saw 3 fish. As it was this spring this fall the day was saved by the dolly varden... Thank god for dollies

    Great looking dollies, what fly are you using? From the pics it almost looks like a corkie? I hope the hike was nice at least you made it out in one piece.
