Saturday, July 10

I have fished with guides before that say they are the best, but all I had in return was the receipt and the nasty smell of skunk. At the end of the day I was sore like hell, had a swollen knee and couldn't even lift my arm up....

but I still had a smile on my face and a fish on the grill :)

Went 2 for 4. The one I released was a huge native, and 2 that kicked my butt!

I highly recommend Damon who'd like to take a guided trip and learn the in and outs of Steelhead and Salmon fishing. I know I'll go again... Thanks again Damon!

it was good seeing some Off'ers(BigDog and Youngbuck) out there too... :D

:shock: I like that people think chinook don`t hit flies!:lol: Crack me up! What do they think they ate when they were smolts???:lol::lol: I guess they come to that conclusion swingin big flies in big water, that is rare, this pic is not! Try lighter (NOT LONGER! eggs:D) leader and some small flies on weary fish. Dropper jigs with a fly attached is a killer way for a gearhead;) to get a fly to fish in those bigger holes.

I just noticed/remembered how wet that fish got me!!!! He didn`t like my ugly arse at all!!

That was simply a stab back bro. You mentioned a couple nasty words in yer first reply. I use lead/split shot (with 20"-30" of leader below, mainline is from lead to fly line) on my rod so it`s a tiny bit different than what yer doin. You gonna call me before the fish are too dark to care?
