Tip Up....

  It was a fun few hours on the Rocky today, as I was able to meet up with soon to be Steelhead geek Dan C.  Dan has recently acquired the rod, reel, boots, etc and today may have been his second time fishing for Steelhead.

As we walked down to the river, we talked strategy and I mentioned that even after you hook a steelhead on the fly, a whole other set of issues presents itself.

Dan was setup with zebra copper john and a two toned egg pattern, as I followed behind swinging a big purple leech. The water we fished was the same as is has been sloow.

Walking back to the truck we laughed as Dan managed to hook into two nice fish but unable to coax them to the net.  We've all been there and the guy who tells you he hasn't is a liar.  I was fortunate enough to bring a nice buck to net.  Good times as always.
