Lets be honest now guys and gals...how often do you actually attempt this and of those times, how often have you been successful. I know that CERTAIN times and places, it can be more productive, but I have not seen or been there. I know guys that have caught lots of steelhead on dries, but I'm not one of them. I've dedicated trips to this and still no luck. So, lets talk real success rates. Oh, and I also have to say, there is nothing like watching a fish tail walk up a shallow still section of water and casting a skater to it. That's biggest adrenaline dump shy or jumping out of a plane with no chute and a pterodactyl in hot pursuit.
