    The sky is the perfect training ground for a steelheader. You learn to deal with crowds. Low holing and pocket picking. You learn valuable lessons about what your insurance company will and will not cover in the event of a break in. And you learn how to navigate trailheads infested in angry dogs, and tweakers all while dodging sled traffic, gear guys and 1,000 Spey yahwehs who just watched skagit master 2. Catching the occasional fish is icing on the cake.

    Don't forget about fish that shoot straight to Reiter within 36 hours of entering the Snoho.

    Daniel - I grew up on the Sky and love that river. But if you want to catch your first steelie on the fly on the swing, your time would be much better spent two steelhead drainages to the north. Assuming it opens this summer with the landslide... which is not a safe assumption.

    This is a funny thread.

    Personally, I figure that Danny boy needs a better job. Better jobs pay more money with more time off. I have found gas and vacation are the 2 ingredients most condusive to steeehead success.

    Or get a girl who's becoming a nurse practitioner so you can work part time and fish and work on other projects the rest of the time.

    Count it.

    If you want to just get a fish, you can ride along in my drift boat this summer on the Sky. We'll toss spoons and bobber our way down to pick up a hatchery griller or three. You'll at least see where they hold so you can try it on flies later.
