This one is a bit touchy!!! But you will sooner or later see that steelhead to the fly is an art and long times in between fish is very common even among the very best fishermen. I am a average fishermen when it comes to steelhead but I learned long ago that a fishing trip be it a day or week should not be centerd around catching fish. When I learned to relax and enjoy my surroundings with out all the anxiety of hooking a fish I would enjoy my self a lot more. Casting well can be very rewarding in its self, and we certainly do make many casts in between fish so you better enjoy casting if your going to fish steelhead with the fly. Relax and have fun and the fish will come.
