Re: Thin Water Steelhead
All the advice that has been given here is excellent. I would add one other piece of advice if possible. Ignore them, most of those fish milling around in that pool are not feeders. Your chances of getting good hook ups go up considerably if you find fish in moving water. And it is amazing how many Lake Erie fish will sit in "nothing" water, little pockets of fast water where a boulder or log or dark water provides them with cover. These fish are not only far more aggressive and more likely to strike, they are far less picky because they have less time to examine a fly then a fish sitting in a slow current pool.
