nice fish! guess that is one of the downsides of a big rod!
now try doin that while smokin a stogie at the same time....
the only guy i know who can do that is the legendary miyawaki
but nice fish nonetheless!
Not steel, but hey, that beats nothing. I wouldn't have been able to fish this spot without the long rod and a reasonable circle spey (I'm left hand dominant). I wish I was as good a steelhead fisherman as the legendary Miyawaki.
