First steelhead trip several years ago. Some sketchy advice from a local fly shop, no guide, no idea what to use. Tied on a black egg-sucking leech and hooked 21 'B'-run steelies from the Clearwater River in two days of fishing. The weather was nasty, the water high and off-colored, and the fishing was hot. I only landed 7 of the 21, but what a hoot!
1 of the 7 landed:
Next was a trip to Kodiak, Alaska back on 07. Silvers on the fly. I built my flyrod for the trip and we fished non-stop for 6 days.
1st fish of the trip - Humpy:
Last fish from Pasagshak estuary - Bright Silver Salmon:
Last Silver of the trip out of Buskin Lake:
Many memorable fish since that time, especially this beast from my favorite spring this past season:
And this one from the lower Henry's Fork a couple of years ago:
Too many memorable fish to name all of them, but you get the idea.
