First Steelie Trip of the Fall Season
 
Just got back from my first steelie trip of the year, great being in the stream chasing steel again. My buddy and I drove over to Elk Creek in PA. Conditions were tough yesterday with the tremendous "Leaf" hatch coming off; it was non-stop all day long. We did manage some fish despite the hatch. We planned on fishing all day today but got rained out, Elk was nearly in flood. Here's a pic of my first of the new season...

Sweet!!!!!


I need to try the steelhead thing. But I am going to end up missing this season due to work reasons. So the most I can hope for is catching their much smaller cousins (at least until the general season shuts down after NOV 30th) ;)

Dan,
The cork on that rod looks clean. New rod? If it is, that fish was a great way to break that rod in!

Yes it is Mark, I saw it in the shop when I was in PA in the spring and it just wouldn't stop whispering "Take me home with you"...It's a 10' 6wt Echo, that was the first steelie on it; and it handled it well. Really liked the way it fishes...

Steelhead are my favorite to fish. That's a nice little porker, I bet it put up a good fight.
