What an awesome day!!!!!! Bigsteel and I went with metalfisher of groundnpoundsteelheader and his dad, Rich. What a great trip that was. Metalfisher was great and with his knowledge of steelhead and perfect instructions I got this hawg on my 6 wt flyrod.....18 pounds of beauty...of course he is a native but it was a pleasure to send him back to the water....45 minutes to bring him in...:yay:

What a rush, my second steel and my first on my new flyrod....sweeeeet

CONGRATULATIONS R in Order!!!

CONGRATULATIONS R in Order!!!

Holy Toledo Batman...way to go Rose!!! :dance::clap::yay:

I'll bet that using your new 6wt. rod with that monster; was even better than that trout on my 5' foot UL Lamiglas rod!

It also "shows to go ya"...that a peep doesn't need to spend a bazillion dollars on gear either.

Oh happy day! I'll bet your still "on a buzz"!!! :clap::clap::clap::yay::yay::yay:

yes what an awesome day........a lot of hookups and a lot of fun......i learned more in one day from metalfisher then i have since i started...he definitely has steelhead dialed in..i can't wait to do it again...he worked his butt off and has great ambition,,,,,i think he had just as much fun watchin us hookup then anything....

if your wantin to learn steelhead then get a hold of damon,,,hes got it figured out....

thanks so much for the great day bro I can't wait to do it again.......

Now I have to go and stare at the pic for a bit......:lol: :lol: :lol:
