So i was planing to get to the river at 5 am but like allways for some reason i couldn't make it so i got there until 6 and the first think i saw at the river 2 beavers so i thought this is going to be a good day!! i start casting and for about 2 hours of trying, nothing no bites or nothing but i could see fish were active a lot of them jumping getting flies then i decide to try a spot where i saw a guy hooking a big nook ( in fact i helped hem with the net to landed it) then i turn around and the same guy was comming to his spot so i told hem i was thinking of trying your spot, do you know any other good spot to fish so he told where i could try but you can stay here and fish with me i said ok so i made my first cast and he told me wath i was doing wrong and give me a lot of information about steelhead and then after a hour or so told me im going to a diferent place. ok good luck!! so now i took his spot after a while of no bites i decide to move on so i try the spots that he told me and nothing one bite but no fish hooked on!! so i decide to go for a hike along the river and found a good hole after some hiking i sow a what i thought it was a good one i made my first cast and nothing made my second one remembering what the guy told me and i got a bite i set the hook and bam bam fish on!!!:clap: i was so excited and dam the fish gave 4 to 5 min of a unique feeling so when i finally got it( which it was a litle hard cause i dont have a net) i call my wife she was happy for me and i called my friends that called me crazy for getting up so early on weekends to go fishing and i dont know what else to said but catching big fish is a lot funner than little trouts i still remember the feeling on my pole and reel when the fish try to took off. AWESOME!!!!!!
