    Had a killer day on the Sky today! Landed a really nice buck that taped at 34" by 18.5". Not a single other person fishing my hole, PARADISE, despit the hellacious wind. Phone was in my pack, so unfortunately no photos, but it was my first steelhead on the spey rod, and Im stoked!!!!! I lost another one that felt a lot bigger when it straightened out my damn hook!! Ill never use tiemcos for steelhead flies ever again!
    On a related note, a buddy of mine landed a 39" x 21" inch monster on the Sauk yesterday

    I skipped class to hit the OP last week. Had tests today. That just wouldn't be wise to skip I don't think.

    You did not skip zoology class today, you just took it into the field.

    Congrats. I hit the Snoqualmie. One hooked, but not landed - felt like a hatchery fish.

    Beautiful morning. Great to hit the river one last time.
