Been a while

So after life has slowed down for a few hours and I was actually in town, I escaped to a coastal stream for summers... was not let down.
Showed up late in the day, fished for a few hours and missed a few fish - landed one little steelhead, not much spunk in him.
Did some bush-wackin' and found a cool camp spot for the dog and I.. crashed out early and headed back up the next day. Quite a few people out, but did manage a decent spot a ways outta the crowd and within a few casts had action.. missed! This went on for about an hour, nibble nibble - bobber barely jiggled and cause I saw what was happening down below I lifted.. all hell broke loose. This fish went straight up - airborne right out the gate.. down stream taking what little of 6# test I had on my reel, so I had to chase it! Had to make some funky terrain changes of about 8-10' while keepin' this fish under control - err more like get controlled by this fish while making these hops... no worries though, after a few minutes dinner is on the beach...
Fished again for another hour with another take down that didn't stick and as quick as I was able to get away, I had to get back. I plan to get back out this week some time, this time to fish it with a fly rod and possibly shoot some vid with this little flip thing I was given..

Nice story man!! Glad you could get out and enjoy the fishing. It is always nice to find sweet little spots that no one really knows about. Enjoy!!

Dude let me know if you want a tag-along. I've got all sorts of time off this week and picked up a 8wt fly setup. Get all settled into the new house?

All settled - tidy up Travis' room and get ready for him around the 1st of October!! Gettin' the "office" dialed in and tying again, now that I have access to my goods..

Should be able to do a early mission.. half day?
