Hey, just wondered what that fly looked like that the old man gave you. Do you think that maybe you could post a pic of that fly?

Do you think the catch rate success was the fly or the technique that the old man showed you to fish, or maybe both? Just curious!

I would say the fine leader pared with the presentation and fly was the magic combo...

I altered one each of the three above and had poor results...We were just dang lucky to meet someone with knowledge and had willing fish.

Yes, it sure sounds like it. He has probably fished that river for steelies for years, sure was nice that he was willing to share some of that knowledge with a total stranger.
