I am starting to look more into steelhead fishing and I had some questions and wanted to know what you thought.

1. Good Books on steel head fishing?
2. Best rod (non spey) ie action, length, line weight?
3. Best flies. I have been tying green butt skunks, comets, polar shrimp, and several
streamer patterns. What are ones that I should never be without.

Just curious. Thanks. PS. Is it possible to become obsessed with a fish you've never caught? I think I am. Please don't let anyone on the striper board see this I have to go on a clave with them this weekend but I think that steelhead might be the perfect fish. It's the size of a striper, and requires the finesse of trout.
