Trigger Happy Steelheading 11.6.10
Spent the morning swinging streamers for steelhead. Got up early, packed a lunch, thermos full of coffee, and planned my attack against the chromers. Armed with only a loomis dreder, I began to work my fly through a favorite run. BANG!, a steelhead absolutely crushes my streamer. I of course set the hook without delay, fish off. Five minutes later, history repeats itself. You gotta let him take it, yet, I prefer to set the hook like Bill Dance on sunday morning TV. This has got to be the hardest part of swinging streamers for steelhead. I had another hookup later in the morning. I got to fight this fish for a couple head shakes before fish off. On the brighter side, 3 solid grabs on my home river before 10:00am, not bad at all.
