Little Summer Steelhead Oct 18th / 10

Add caption
This little Steelhead was a great sport! We sight fished this steelhead who was in a tail-out below many Coho... We presented many flies to her with a little interest starting with small subtle patterns and progressed to larger & larger ones as the challenge continued... This fish loved one of the flies and actually had it in its mouth 6 times even chasing it after the fly was pulled out of her mouth. Then she disappeared up into the depths of the pool and we thought we were at a loss! When we came back she was there again. I tied on a large Olive colored leach which she didn't want to have anything to do with and simply hunkered down in her lie. I went to a brilliant hot orange leach (BC orange we call it) and she hated it so much that the fish swam 4 feet to eat it and didn't let go! All this time working for this fish; cast 3 more inches of line I yelled to my client, shorten up a foot... feed it in so it gets deeper, SET THE F'N HOOK!!! :0 A well deserved fish and greatly rewarding at the end of it all. Not because of the fight nor the size of the fish but the circumstances and environment in which we had this awesome experience with this great little Wild Summer Steelhead:)
