    Nice! I ordered a raised pillar model from William a while back but I have a long wait yet. I might have to fill the gap with one of the new kingpins...

    Great Marketing! Buy one of these beautiful reels and you'll catch mass quantities of fat Steelhead.

    In the future, best remove the gloves before handling and please keep our wild steelhead off the rocks for those hero shots. Thanks

    2nd that T Dave, never seen a fish "pose" so still next to the rod for the money shot unless it has been slammed in the head with a rock?? At least when it runs it can slam up in the rocks and beach itself on shore, right. That's so wonderful.

    GEEBUS!! Get off it already.... So if he was using a "fly fishing tailing glove" that'd be more acceptable...I mean...since it's not a glove and all.


    Golfy, nice coho! (totally kidding)


    Absolutely beautiful fish and reel man. Nice job! I really need to make it up your way for some of that action.

    I just noticed, the handle is on the wrong side of your reel. Send it to me!

    Im just saying that the topic gets beaten to death without the benefit of the doubt ever given...ever. Agreed there are better ways, but I'd be wiling to bet golfman handles more fish than most and is not carelessly beaching them. The bandwagon is getting crowded is all...

    I'd wager that you, along with many others who are hyper-critical over the perceived mishandling of fish haven't seen many fish "pose" at all. Ever.

    I saw that first picture and guessed before I scrolled how far in before it started getting hot. I guessed 4, and I nailed it! Congrats on the fish, I'll give you the benefit... FOR NOW!!!! :)

    Downturned eye=live. If anything, an overly played fish that's spent. No big deal with the glove

    Handled thousands of fish actually, fishing over 200 days a year for almost a decade in Montana will do that. Sorry, maybe you should quit making an ass out of yourself Benjy. My goal is always to put pressure on quick, land and release fish that still have life in them, especially wild steelhead. Or I guess you could play them for twenty minutes so you can get the "pose" of a lifeless fish if thats how you roll.
