Great video. I read an article about getting steel to eat dries on the great lake tribs a few months back. Good read but i seriously dont think it will ever happen for me...haha. Maybe by fluke.

Fishing with dry's is pretty unusual here on the upper Rogue river till water levels drop to the 1,000 CFS level. Then things can get interesting in a few runs. Have had some pretty good luck at this on the Deschutes.

Yeah thats a favorite of mine too Fred I think I've been watching that clip for around two or three years now like it was gospel!

Pegboy1, its possible but only if you fish them. I know I go half a day or so and the doubts get me and I tie on a wet. If they whack indicators it stands to reason they'll whack a dry like a big Wulff or caddis. Its just a matter of timing and finding the right flow. I've had fish chase wiggle minnows and wakers but never commit. Its gonna happen eventually and when it does Fred will be able to hear me hooting it up in Oregon!

Thanks Fred! I loved seeing them flash under the fly. Maybe we should have a thread where folks post their favorite fishing video? Could be some real good Friday evening entertainment!

Great video! Oh to do that one day!

I spent (wasted) a couple days trying to get Great Lakes steel to eat dry flies. I still have the Waller Walkers and other hairy, waking dries and hope some day to be at a place to use them.
I have no idea why GL steel shy away from dries when compared to those west coast fish but you're right, those GL steelies will occasionally strike at and indicator. It stands to reason that eventually they'll take a dry but I plain ran out of patience. Swinging wets works but the thrill of the take of steelhead on top would be the bomb.

I guess this is another reason fly fishing is an obsession... there's always something just out of reach!

Over this summer I found myself bitten by a spey bug and have been lurking a speywebsite and ebay trying to find a couple of two hand rods. I have a strong feeling that maybe I am going to leave my single hand rod and end up using two hand rod all the time.
That’s a great video by the way and will worsen my addiction to spey bug.
