STEELHEAD

STEELHEAD!!!
-a tough fish to land...a great challenge!
I angled for this fish in only small Lake Ontario tribs...no big river...no hordes of unethical anglers...3 days of angling I saw 3 persons!
I was early for the run up the small tribs and saw very limited action..8 hook ups with only one to the net...
all the rest of the hook ups either broke off or ran into brush piles/logs/ or other obstacles resulting in a lost fish.... and a  few choice words!!!
a humbling experience for an accomplished fly fishing angler!!!!!!

8 pounds of hen steelhead




A better view..this hen was returned to spawn.





Now for the runner up prize....
18" stream bred brown...I landed many small browns/bows while angling...keeping things interesting!
