    GOOD JOB DANIEL! I believe you. And I like that you are hooking up with things that are shiny. Keep it up and you might even land one this year!

    Only reason I asked because you didn't seem that excited about it from your post, so I figured that maybe you weren't feeling too convinced of it. It just read like: "ho hum, hooked a steelhead, also some pinks." I mean, you hooked a fucking steelhead, man, and kept it on and got to fight it for a minute! That's rad. And nice work. We all know you've been working hard for it.

    LOL Oh man, when I wrote that was when I was literally on my way to bed. I was freaken exhausted, and had a sleeping pill kicking in. I was pretty out of it but still felt obligated to update the rookie log.

    Understandable.

    Good work. I'm looking forward to putting more hours into swinging for steelhead once the salmon start drying up.

    Someone owes you a royalty for keeping the clicks coming. Useless shit, but nonetheless this is internet marketing gold..

    So to all you rookies out there I have a bit more advice. When you are still trying to get your first steelhead, and all your friends on this forum are catching, and landing them except you.............find new friends. LOL

    I am too tired for a wise comeback. So I will stick with, " I am rubber, your glue, so whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you". Although now thinking about it I would say it is a safe bet that whatever sticks to you will be found on your lower back.

    It is your day off. Shouldnt you be on the river like a true steelheader instead of looking at attractive pictures of me on your computer.
