    I've been trying to get this up for a couple of weeks now... This is a video of my Dad skating a dry fly last month. I spent some trying to get some footage of skating dry flies and give my Dad a chance to try and land some fish. He got his first fly-caught steelhead on the same fly about 20 minutes before this was taken.

    I was fishing up on the east fork of the Foss one summer day a few years ago. Was catching cutts to 14" and then it happened, I got a steelhead on a dry. A size 14 Black Humpy. It was a legal sized fish, so I didn't feel so bad about keeping it. The adipose fin had a healed scar. So I bonked it and took it home to eat.

    When I went to clean it, it didn't have any eggs or a milt sac in it. So I wasn't to sure of the sex of the fish. But it was plump.

    Fantastic. Tried it, but didn't have that kind of success this year. Hard to beat watching the take. Might watch it a few more times. :beer2:
