    I started fishing for steelhead about two years ago but finally landed my first steelhead today at the Snoqualmie. It was a wild summer hen of about 6 to 8 lbs.

    Sorry, no pictures since I was alone.

    Great job! Congrats. Must have been quite a thrill. I'm just getting in to steelhead on the fly. I can't wait for the day when I can post something similar.

    Well done!

    Well done, now tell us exactly the rock upon which you stood when you landed this mythical beast! Or, how about whether you were above or below Fall City? ;)

    Too late, Ed. I got GPS coordinates and a detailed description of the fish he caught. I'm going out to catch it tonight.
