Summer Steelhead don't Hit Surface Flies???

I read in another topic that a fly shop joker told Gregg that summer run steelies dont take flies off the surface. That is complete BS. 3 of the fish I hooked last thursday morning (21 sept) certainly do not believe in that notion - these 3 hit wakers. Here is a picture of one of them scanned with the fly that got it. Water temp: 53deg F

One has to be damned careful about what you believe when it comes to advice on steelheading!

cheers
