    I was priveleged to play guide to a father and son who each got jackhammered by swung flies their first time doing it. Watching the old man stammer and stutter and try to locate the fish as it rocketed form river left to right at lightning speed. Watching the son turn into a total goofball laughing hysterically as his fish cartwheeled. It was the best fishing day of my life. And I love being turned into a goofball when something I cant see jolts me to life unexpectedly every time. Even though i plan 90% of my entire trip around preparing for that split second moment. It always seems to scare the crap out of me and delight me in a fishgasm.

    It's like this....
    Steelhead, sex and money, they are all the same. If your never had it or caught it, it's all you think about. If you have caught it or have it, you
    think about something else.
    Go catch one and shut the F up already.....
