I fished for the fish of a 1000 casts for many, many, many years when I lived in Washington. I caught a few with flies and bait and spinners. I guess I tried it all. I just got tired of fishing in the shitty weather. Now I fish for Brown trout and I find them just as exciting as having a Steelhead on the end of my line. I guess what it boils down to is what trips your trigger.
