So this panhandle can just spit on our steelhead and that's ok, but when I point out what a childish hunk of fish slime he is just because he's from where ever he's from you gotta come to his defense or try to put me down. I'm a hacker? These are the big guys? Are you kidding. I've probably caught more steelhead in five years then most have caught in thier lives. And yes, I do use an eight weight. And yes I am afraid to break my 5 on these huge fish. I am hoping that somebody on this site reads, and has read Scheck's book in question. And anybody who doubts how big the steelhead are can call the oak orchard fly shop and ask them. You can take your wild imaginary steelhead and flush them down the toilet for all I care. You cry baby satans. Your wild steelhead are just Satan's poop in the river. How could anybody learn anything in a world where people like "Duh, my fish is better than yours, Duh" exist.
