Default McSteelie!!! haha

walked about 2 miles of the v with not one deep hole containing steel. I just about gave up. then I went to where I seen that steelie last week and was surprised to see he had some of his friends over for a party. well I took my custom 7 wt and a black bugger and casted to um. looked like they chased it a few time but maybe not. anywho I see this other steelie come out of the deep. I cast and my cast lands 4 feet in front of his face. I let it sink to eye level. strip it, pause strip it pause and here he comes like a freight train!!! he smashed my bugger like there was no tomorrow and I set the hook. the fight was on!!! this steel had mad fight in him. he made my orvis mid arbor scream like a lil girl!!! 5 minuted later I get him to shore. I hurry and took a pic and sent him on his way. he took off almost instantly and went back to his business! then i tried for more but 10 minutes later the sky got super dark and I hear thunder. needless to say i didn't wanna end up being a lightning rod so I beat it out of there. I might go back wed or thurs.... too bad there wasn't more steel but the water is way to low!

thanks Big Rich! I try my best! I wish the pic was better tho. I hate being alone! no great posing pic! I got this one ashore and unhooked and took the pic. I already had taken my camera out while I was fighting it earlier . I set the cam on the ground and kept fighting the fish. then I finaly got it in and set it next to the river all clean unhooked it and turned to grab the cam and power it on and I turn around and this fish is making a getaway already half way in the water! I ran and grabbed his tail and took the pic and held him and washed the leaves off in the deeper water for like a minute more till he left! I need a fish buddy so I can get those great posing pix and keep the fish cleaner! lol
