Am I evil for busting out laughing at the end? That was an awesome reaction.

Looks like he got acrobatic at the end and worked it lose. Hell of a fight though.

That was a bummed deal. Been there and done that more than once. Looked like it put up a pretty good fight.

I was right on top of him in the water too.. I could have kicked him if I wanted too.. I was just frustrated and felt like chasing his ass I guess.. I don't know just a natural pissed off action... lucky I didn't draw and start putting rounds in the water after him hahahahaha

I gotta say, you're pretty spry. Of course I don't think that there's a one of us that hasn't had that happen or haven't tried to dive in after one. Heck, Raincatcher almost dove in on my first steelhead.

Great fight. I had that happen to me once, but I had a net. So I ran out and netted it because it was just sitting in slack water. As i was walking back to shore, steelhead in net, it flops out of the net and jets back into the river, never to be seen again. :( Good times

As the saying goes, "It's better to have hooked and lost then to not have hooked up at all". I've been there a few times too...with the same reaction. :cool:
