Seeing that fish leap from the water and fight against the line, that's all I was thinking about. I wanted to try something new and go after a fish that I had never caught: Steelhead Trout.
I got the urge to try my luck for steelhead in early September. Not sure what it was about the steelhead, the name sounded so tough. I watched a few youtube videos and read a few blogs describing the freight train take off these guys put on a line. I'm an Ohio boy so large and smallmouth along with some crappie bent the rods of my youth. But as my new addiction took off I knew I needed to experience fly fishing as depicted in magazines (sigh...marketing...) I wanted to catch trout and if I'm going to catch trout I want the largest and hardest to catch. The seed was planted, heres how it all went down.
