Not a bad first ever steelhead on the fly

So I'm new to the area and am used to catching smaller trout in the Rockies. Living out in the PacNW now, though, I have to go chase after the big boys.

I got my first steelhead over the weekend and was surprised with my luck.

I didn't get a measure on it, but I am guessing ~32".

I think I'll be doing this a little more often! :)

Oh dear,now you've gone and done it...you have joined the rest of us fisher folk who have Steel Fever. Don't even bother going to a doctor,unless he/she has the fever too. They just look at you like you're a wild eyed maniac who's lost control of your life. Love the look of amazement on your face,it does say it all, and says there will be more. Congrats!

Way to land your first metal! A hell of a buck it is too! How many trips to the river without landing a steely before you hooked into that prize? I fished almost every weekend for a year chasing metal before my river hours paid OFF!
