Snoqualmie Boat launch Oct. 2002. I was tossing a 6wt swinging an egg pattern (peachy king) I let it swing and sit in the slack water next thing I know I feel a subtle take then I set the hook and C-YA! Line went zinging down the river. I think the fact that she wrapped herself around the line may have helped me conquer my first chromer. She wasn't a big fish whopping 22" but this was the confidence booster I needed. The cool thing was a G&F officer stopped by after the fact and checked my fly and fish to make sure I was playing fair. I didn't have a camera on me but he did and generously took a picture of me and mailed it. I was Stoked!
