Bigsteel and I spent his birthday on the river floating with Grant Scheele. Bigsteel hooked into his midmorning and I caught my native steelhead a short while after.....What a ride!!!! A beautiful day to be on the river and what a difference a drift boat makes. All in all a perfect day. yeehaw :dance:

Sweet job guys! Second fish almost looks like a hatchry misclip? Its hard to tell from a picture but those tore up fins make me wonder. Either way good job on the catch and release! Those fish will be remembered forever. They will keep you up at night. Your lawn will always need mowed and your wife will wonder if your every going to do anything on the honey do list.

Yeehaw...:dance: It was a great feeling....Mine was beautiful but we wanted her back in the water, hence the hastily snapped pic....she didn't put up quite the fight that bigsteels did but it was sweet. Ready for some more. Learned a lot on the trip. Grant is excellent and had just as much if not more enthusiasm then we did getting our firsts.

Congrats to you!!!
