    There are three types of steelheaders:

    1. Stone cold killer. This is the guy who has his fly in the water ALOT, and what separates him from #2 is whenever he makes contact with a fish he knows why.....as in why the fish was holding there and why it took chosen presentation and fly. Always mentally recording data based off hundreds/thousands of opportunities. Every fish is a building block to the next. Now it's a matter of wether there is an aggressive fish in the run.....game over if there is. These are the guys who never stop steelheading.

    2. This is the guy who spends alot of time on the river but also has many more interests. He has caught lot of fish but gets to a certain plateau then stalls out. Going through the motions per se. If there is an aggressive fish in a run, he makes contact 70% of time, if there are pressured non aggressive fish he mostly strikes out, were dude 1 finds a way. These are the guys who give it up after many years...figuring they've been there....done that

    Naw, I'm just more of a "walk down and fuck em all" type guide. I don't get as many sports but the free martinis afterwards make up for it. And I got two stickers, viagra and cialus. Basis covered.

    Daniel,

    I do not know you, and I do not believe I have ever responded to your posts in the past. However, since this thread is beginning to fuse steelheading, metaphysics, and spirituality, I feel compelled to share my insights.

    The law of attraction states that the universe will provide for our true desires, and therefore in order to be one with the universe you must project your true desires to the universe. It is this very law that I would like to illustrate to you, through the lens of a non-invested observer.

    By creating an account on this site and beginning your initial thread on catching your first steelhead on the swing, the desire you projected to the universe was one of blunder.

    Your attitude, although admirable and earnest, was basically telling the universe that your skin was so thick that you could get skunked for years and be a laughing stock of the steelhead community, and it would not matter. I believe you stated that your primary motivation was to create threads that would serve as an invaluable resource to novice steelheaders. Daniel, these goals have been met, and right now the only vibes the universe is getting is that you would prefer to continue wallowing in fishlessness, that you are not ready to accept the death of your original steelheading identity.

    Daniel, I believe that it is my duty as part of the universe to tell you that Daniel Ocean must die. His legacy is becoming what was prophetized in the beginning. It is becoming the tale of the man who could not catch a steelhead. You must be reborn if you wish to change your destiny.

    You must abandon this forum, and project to the universe that what you really want to do is catch a steelhead. You must project to the universe that WFF comes second to steelhead. You need to kill Daniel Ocean, and rejoice in a new era. You must embrace a new voice that is one of strength and rugged experience, not one of hapless endeavor.

    To do this, you need to create a new profile.

    Cheers,

    Jason

    There are two kinds of 3 types of steelheaders.

    Type 1. Can afford to travel to fish snd hire guides. They typically turn around and write articles about where they just fished and they catch the most fish.

    Type 2. The guy who thinks steelheading can be perfected. That they can be systemically studied and caught at will. Lots of this type is from Michigan.

    Type 3. This angler fishes when he can it might be once a month it might be a couple times a week. This type works hard and is sometimes rewarded.

    Actually this is all BS! Steelheaders cannot be type cast each one is an individual. We think we see patterns but they really aren't there. We are just people putting us into types is pretty silly. Steelheading is about time on The water snd hopefully with some application of skill and knowledge we get fish from time to time. The real trick of steelheading us being content with what the river gives you.
    Anyone who can do that i will call a great steelheader.
