The Magic of Ben Howard?
OK . . so I've badmouthed Ben Howard as a worthless featureless trench. Then Andre gets that beautiful buck there, and now I'm told another was hooked (on for about 30 seconds) and lost this last weekend! On a day when NOBODY was getting fish!
What's up?? Do you think these steelhead are holding down there waiting for the Plug Pullers to pull their boats outta the water?? <G> Anybody out there like this water and mind sharing with me what I'm missing.
Don't get me wrong - my hat's off to Andre and Tim (the guy who hooked the fish this last weekend). Hell, right now I'd swing my fly in a muddy ditch if you told me I could hook a steelhead there!
