    June 08 Summer run



    Picked up this little guy this morning. About halfway through the swing he grabbed, I dropped the loop and then set the hook immaturely. Luckily my drag on my reel was set real loose. I guess I'm showing a little rust. The fish took off on a run, and my reel was backlashing a little bit. Luckily it didn't snag up on itself. A real spunky fish. It didn't want to quit. Thanks to Steelie Mike for tailing it :-) and the pictures. The fish measured out at 31"

    Loop droppers unite! I think you are about due to be admitted into the OCP.

    K2, Mike, I'm Ready for OCP...What is the initiation ceremony like?


    Yuhina, Yeah that is a video camera. I was trying to get some steelhead on film from the angler's point of view. Unfortunately, the batteries died, and I didn't get this one on film. It will happen soon though..
