Back to work with Steel on the brain

After three days at Pulaski, I'm back at work. Fishing for Steelhead is clearly better than doing email.

It was my first time fishing for Ontario Steelhead though one could argue that my casting lesson in March was fishing though that would be quibbling and you know how I hate quibbling.

I managed to hook sixteen. I saw about a half dozen of those, most of which were Steelhead, but I also had a five minute fight with an elderly yet feisty King. He tangled me in a stump. That was the one fish I regretted not getting in; at least I got my fly back.

More thoughts soon.

My first (and only) Steelhead


  1. congrats on the steel. The smile says it all.

  2. Great fish! Looking forward to hearing more about the trip.

  3. Thx, guys. Yeah good trip. I didn't feel bitten by the bug while I was there -- not that I wasn't having a great time -- but once I got back at work I began to think that on the water chasing Steel was the place to be.

  4. Congrats Steve.
    Hard fighting chrome.

  5. Back to work with a bump (and a head cold) this morning too.

    The feature film will be available in the next week or so. It was a very good trip.

    I am going back up. Soon.

  6. The more the days go by, the more I miss being on the water.

  7. Looks like it ate a leaf a while ago.
