I love the take, but even better is a take after a long drought. I fish on a limited budget, so rarely get to fish the right water(beats) at the right time. When you fish for a long time without even a pull and then a fish comes and rips line from the reel... nothing beats it, all of a sudden you feel like you are fishing again.

The take, without doubt, that evocative sound as your reel speaks, (if you fish off the reel as I do) often after many hours of silence. But everything is very good, just being there, priceless!!

Different things set my pulse racing every time I go fishing. It may be using a new rod, fishing new water or seeing a big fish but i suppose the feeling you get when a fish takes the fly is the best a bit like an orgasam short lived but you spend most of your life looking for the next fix.

The connection!

Have any of you taken the time to make eye contact with an Atlantic Salmon as you revive/release it. Feeling the pulse deep in their belly as they gain strength and staring deep into the salmons eye, almost human. Do any of you know what i mean by this connection? All aspects have been mentioned and they are all a big part of it , but the connection with each fish seems to be where it's at for me now.

For me, and when I have the opportunity to fish for them which is usually about once every other year. But with the family and young children I haven't been in the last 4 years.

I always liked the take that you feel right down the rod to your arm. Nothing like a good hard pull on the end to get the excitement pumping again.

Then a quick photo and a release to wonder where the fish is off to.

Love the pictures of the Gaspe and will one day get there to view the real deal.

Cheers - Hansen

i have always been a sucker for that top water strike and last year while being introduced to fly fishing with dry flies i was having a blast catching 10" brookies on the fly rod.

I also love the sound that is made by the fly rod and line as it whips through the air.

Someone wrote "The tug is the drug." My sentiments exactly. There's nothing like a HARD take from an aggressive bright new fish.

Jumps, tail walking and crazy battle are pretty good too.

Ann - Love your photos!!!! This steelheader has had the desire to fish Atlantics for some time now. Your beautiful pictures are not helping it to be forgotten or to wane at all!
