Was that a steelhead

Things you have to love after a long time of not getting anything for a long time.

The first hook up of the summer that doesn't last but 10 seconds and then you have to question was that really a steelhead but there is no doubt.

The feeling of relief that comes from that brief hook up and the feeling of not caring about much for the rest fo the day which invarablely leads to an other hook up.

Spotting a steelhead. Having a game plan to get it to take. And the plan works

A Fish that takes you into your backing upstream.

A big strong Girl with an adipose bigger then your thumb.

The smell of your hands when she swims away.

Knowing that the skunk if finally off and now you can get down to some serious fishing.

Hope there is enough time to experience all those this summer.
