    No fly there, the blank called out is not a fly blank, Kerry is chief at Batson Enterprises which makes rod blanks in Sequim.


    Life goes on, enjoy it...

    Judging by the posters screen name (bait o' eggs) I'd guess bait, but still a nice fish. When are wild steelhead not supposed to be removed from the water?

    That's what it's all about boys, trying to save big natives like that buck! The fish is alive. Wonder if he released him?

    Bob, the No, you can't hold up a fish (hurts interanl organs) now in some rivers, and in none after May one.:professor

    The Rainshadow IST1264F is a 2 piece steelhead rod designed for 10-17 pound line that is 10'6" long. While it probably could be made into a spinning rod, is probably a casting rod.


    There is no way that it was caught on a fly.

    Nice fish though.
