Peter,

This is probably Elk in PA off of lake Erie. It looks like the gentleman that posted it is from PA.

Flies only? C&R or harvest?

They have to have a lot of participants to justify the $5,000.00 prize. Is this good for the sport?

Figured as much -- just being a deliberate PITA -- any idea how many Elk Creeks there are out there? There's an Elk Creek in PA that a trib of Penns Creek near Coburn -- fished it too -- wonder if he meant that one?

No kidding, eh?

Here's the latest 'creation' (from about an hour ago) from this wine-soddened PITA -- a steelhead version of the venerable P&O. I hooked steelies on P&Os long before I learned you weren't supposed to. So here's a suitable "steelheaded" version for those cold, clear GL days.

Peter,

What no little floss tail and not in pink! How can you possibly catch a steelhead on that fly without the little floss tail, and in pink it is the finest fly ever devised by the greatest steelhead sharpster ever!

I think there is a third one in eastern PA. I need to check when I get home.

....And tell flytyer the truth. "The Tail got chewd off!!!"

There is one (Elk Creek) in Idaho. Why don't you boys come out here. Compared to the weather in the GLs you'll think your in Florida.
