    Great first steel and best of luck on the nookie. Try estuary patterns (investigate BC fly forum) but my favorite pattern is Blair's Baiter, designed by the late Blair Alexander a very great guy. Hit the north end beaches hard late July to mid Aug.

    Very nice. Not that it matters, but what fly did you take it on?

    As Trapper said above, now you can hang it up and move on.
    Bucket list check off.

    Yeah, like that will happen any time soon.
