    I don't think I could fish for steelhead if I didn't enjoy the whole process. (especially on the Green)

    And thanks!

    O man that got me excited just reading this. I am soon going to dive in the fly fishing world and the green will be my home/primary river.

    You'll have a good time, the upper stretches mainly above K.P. state park are my home waters. What parts are you planning on fishing?

    Lately I buy my fishing equipment at hikerway. It is a good tradeoff between price and quality. I fish pretty large steelheads with it.

    To fish big steelheads, you must look like steelheads. Only then will you gain the trust needed to fool them.
