I know it's not a numbers game and they've also been called the fish of a thousand casts, however, I'm curious how many outings it usually takes to hook up for all of you. Steelheading is relatively new to me compared to some of you (2 years of thinking I know what I'm doing), and I've had some success from the perseverance it takes. So naturally I'm curious how often one hooks up with a fish relative to the number of outings. I've read that some guys hook up everytime out, and others have more humble outlooks on what they are able to produce. So what about you? I would love to hear about the number of years you've been at it and how often you have success in hooking up with a fish due to, or not due to, that experience under your belt.
