That is the highest beaching rate I have ever heard of. I am impressed.

It sounds like you are more keeping tension on the fly than stripping? That may work better for Atlantics than for steelhead, especially in the midwest where much/most of the fishing is done at very cold water conditions.

You are right on about the sticky sharp hook. If they do not grab the fingernail when slid across, they are not really sharp enough.
