Bringing a knife to a gunfight - a steelhead story

Don't hear a lot of success stories of folks inadvertently hooking into a steelhead while fishing for trouts. Yours was rare, and well told!

Glad it turned out that way. When I read the title I thought you were going to write about the gear fishermen all packing guns, while you only brought your Swiss Army knife, and got in a nasty fight.

Cool story, well told. I really miss seeing steelhead in the streams I cutthroat fish. Used to be an exciting surprise every now and then....the kind that make your waders spring a new leak.
