Headed up to a spot with Fluffy, and Bigsteel this morning. Got there about 8 this morning and started drifting a pink worm since I've had some recent luck with those. About 8:30 I cast to the far seam and WHAM! Fish On! At first I thought it was a trout since where we were had some decent sized trout, but then it came closer and SKIDOOSH outta the water. There was a couple of tense moments when it decided it wanted to run around Bigsteel's legs, but we landed it just fine.

I do have to admit though, Fluffy gets the fish of the day. He got hammered by the spunkiest trout I think I've ever seen. I would've sworn it was a steelhead. Ended up being a NICE 18 incher that did 3 foot acrobatics....... LilSalmon joined us later and we all ended up getting into something....trout, steelhead.....Bigsteel got hammered a couple of times by some nice steel.....

HAHAH He didn't have a choice.... He was standing in a pool 6 feet behind me and the fish came in there..... saw that it was Biff Steel (extreme fisherman) and it ran straight at him. It was all good. It was a great time.

Sucks I lost my dry fly box........gotta nymph it till I get a job......hehe
