I have to admit I felt a little guilty lately, I have been gear fishing like the last 2 months or so chasing hatchery steelhead without grabbing my fly rod once. It came to a point where I wasn't even having much fun, steelhead fishing is serious business. Right? No! So I decided to grab my fly rod and head out alone and take my time and just have fun. It was easy to do, and amazingly, I was kind of giddy the night before. I chose to fish water I had been fishing lately with gear in an effort to compare the results. The day seemed slow, I had some doubts after all that gear fishing, but just when I was about to give in to the skunk, a steelhead came through. I don't want to share the "results" for fear of calamity in this precious fly fishing only website. It felt great to catch a fish the best way I know how, again. The feeling never gets old. Cheers!
