What a day---Steelie Central
 
Today I headed to the creek alone. I tried to get some company but some had plans and others were out of town. This was my first time out with my new camera and I loved it. I learned a lot today on the water. 1st donít take a photo with the sun to the back of you. 2nd make sure you lens is pointing at you and nothing is in the way. I started my day around 7am and ended it at 3:30pm. The steelhead run is in its early stages. Fish are flooding into certain parts of the creeks and starting to fight and dig redds. The males are all colored up and showing who the dominate male is behind a female. Itís hard to fish when itís amazing to watch.
Today I walked a spot I never take anyone and Itís a hike. In about 200 yards counted almost 20 pairs of fish and countless males fighting. The fly of choice was a white bunny leech with a 6.3mm pink bead.
I hope you all enjoy the photos with my new camera and my outing.

Nice looking fish! That camera takes some nice pictures. What kind of tripod are you using?

Great work!!! I need to get a waterproof camera like that. Those were some long and lean steelhead. Great colors on them!
