    Panhandle has obviously spent very little time fishing the decaying rivers of Puget Sound. I've fished North PS rivers with guides about 4-5 times in the last 10+ years and never caught a steelhead on any of those trips. Francis, hang in there, buddy, it will happen one day but you're fishing for crumbs here in the Seattle metro area. You may want to consider heading east of the mountains during the fall to increase the likelihood that your fly will actually be somewhere in the vicinity of a steelhead while you are fishing.

    Hey pig! Once a pig , always a pig right ? :) Francis, skillet is harmless, I doubt he catches 100 + fish a year, so no legend round these parts hombre

    If you don't judge a fisherman by his fish catching ability, Just what do you use for a yardstick???

    I think a good fisherman is one that fishes with a pure heart and an open mind.

    I just want to fish. I want to meet up with other people that enjoy fly fishing as much as I do. I floated the sky tonight with a really cool guy and had a blast, and I'm floating the stilly monday with another cat that seems like a good fella. So if some self appointed fishing goddess gets his thrills by razzin someone that admittedly still has a lot to learn, he is on a different path than me and I'm not really interested. I'm certainly not gonna let some troll take the jam outta my doughnut. I would love to fish with ya, bhudda, you seem like a straight shooter. After getting my first float in tonight I'm all jazzed up! Didn't hook into anything but it sure felt good to be out there swinging!

    Francis, consider joining a local fly fishing club. I'm not local, but I'm sure there's several around that have members who will help you. I've never been a "club" type of guy, but since joining mine, I've met some really interesting folk with common interests; one is 92 years old, ties beautifully, casts like a machine and is still sharp as a razor. Others fish as much as 300 days/year and are willing to go anywhere, anytime. A lot of knowledge there, and some really great folk. You can get involved as much or as little as you wish.

    Panhandle, you might want to hire a high school student to spell check your site this summer. Reading it is pure "torcher". ;)

    Holy hannah! this is outta control! Are you in law enforcement, panhandle? If you were a gang star I would go by P-handle, you know, like P.diddy?! HA! I got no beef with cops, some of them are good people. You sure seem to like to razz hippies, though. no big whoop. My daddy was a redneck, mamma was a hippie, so I'm like some crazy hybrid...best of both worlds, baby.
