Damn man. Nicely done. What'd it take?
A fish like that. My bet is it took and emerging chub.
lol, if 20+ inches is steel on the yak, about half my fish so far have been steelhead this year i hooked him on a size 14 jigged prince variant i tie. funny thing is, he had 2 somewhat recent scars on the otherside of his mouth from being hooked, and ive been pulled way into my backing twice fishing huge streamers the past month in this same spot and been broken off both times. pretty sure i know this fish.
Awesome fish. I had a brown do that to me two days in a row up on Rock Creek....saw his massive tail twice as he freight trained away. I now refer to him as my white whale, and picture him lurking around this deep hole with a trophy wife and a slap n' tickle hanging out of his gnarled up mouth.
Didn't mean to suggest it was, just remember reading that was the states definition. I have caught smaller steelhead.
One last look before he bolted back to the depths.
Send that out to the MT fly shop's and tell them to eat their hearts out. That's a great looking fish. I've said it before, the Yak is way under-rated IMO.
This may very well be the best bit of out of context theater I've ever seen before:
Also: great fish Mr McNasty.
Um....sure.....except for the part where he had two cracks at a beast on streamers in the same spot on two separate occasions prior.
I think atomic was saying that just reading the referenced line to someone without context would be hilarity and I agree that it is a killer out of context statement.
Ah.....totally. I completely misinterpreted his comment.
The second pic is better. You can get a sense of it's size. It didn't look that big in the first photo, likely because of the angle.
thats what i thought, but i just set my phone down with a 10 second timer set, get a couple pics and release the fish before i even make sure they came out good, so im pretty pleased they came out at all. and as for the actual size, its went about 3" past the 24" mark i made on my rod. . . .so you guys do the math
If that's over 20 inches that's a steelhead so why is it out of the water?
