great fish. there is no problem with not telling the river.
Congrats to your wife, Marty. The scenery looks familiar
Tell her congrats for me, and may there be many more. I hoped she is hooked now.
You might try being right about something before you go shooting your mouth off. Next time let the person who wrote the report tell the story as he sees fit.
Sageman you did good getting your wife into a steelhead. On your own fly too, good stuff.
Sageman, nice job.
Caddis Skater, I'll echo Coach & WT's comments... And add that for a guide you might keep the outspoken BS between you and your client. Here your approach is justification for a bitch slap.
Sageman congrats to the wife. I don't blame you for not saying where it was caught after some of the BS posting about people talking about fishing waters, besides those of us who know the eastside waters have a good idea where.
great pic. The look on her face just describes how excited she really was
Awesome work! Myself and two fishing buddies fished this same river (I'm 99.67% sure that it's the same one) today with a big fat nothing to show for it but a pair of leaking waders for one guy. But such is Steelheading.
man! i love your style chris.
Great pic, tell the missus congrats! She looks SOoOOooO stoked ptyd
What's that jug looking thing behind her?
And I second the bitch slapping for the trash talkers.
A friend flew out this week from the east coast and we took off the week and fished the GR, Klick and Methow. We fished hard and managed to catch fish in every river. Not many but a few in each. We spoke to people, guides fishing those rivers and everyone said they were fishing slow.
Seemed that eggs worked in one river and small nymphs with many rubber legs seemd to be the ticket in the closer rivers.
Way to go for Sagewoman! That's gotta' be a good feeling for both of you - wherever you were fishing. I hope it's a place that's now special to both of you.
Beautiful Steelie nice job I dont blame you a bit for not saying what river Ive been waiting almost 12 years for mine to reopen and low and behold it did.
The most impressive part is Sageman and I were on the river at 7am and fished until almost noon with not so much as a strike. We DID freeze our feet and have ice forming in our rod guides though. We picked up my wife and Sageman's wife and hit the river again. Sageman and I got not a single fish on, yet Sagewoman hooked a fish and landed it!
At least I didn't get shown up by Sageman!
