Winter Steelhead is going strong 2011-2012
** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE ** Nice winter buck took me 10 yards into backing, using a six wt. 14 ft spey rod, Hardy Marquis 1(made in England), 400 grain Rio Flight, with a copper and black intruder variate that is my favorite swinging fly. As you can tell from the photo it was a typical cold winter morning, had to keep putting the rod in the water to thaw the ice out of the guides! ** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **

I think I finally got the hang of it, this is four of over 30+ I hooked in two days (7 wt glooms, Hardy System 9 reel.
My buddy Tom Dolan after Slip Flowler taught him how to bait fish. Three day limit with over 30+ fish hooked!
** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE ** ** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **
Yep, I have it down. I boated 16, let my little buddy, Daniel Fitzjerald, land 7 more, and his dad landed 7-8 on my flies and instructions. I hooked at least 30 but Jerry F. said it was closer to 40 because I had a fish on every time he turned around!

There is a new fish in Washington lakes and Streams"The Tiger Trout". Cross between a Brook Trout and a German Brown Trout. The hybred is sterile and suppose to be more aggresive than either parent.A very good fighting fish. This one is a 20" fish. Maybe our fish and wildlife did something right for a change! All my fish are released unharmed after a quick picture!

** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE ** My buddy retired Colonel Tommy Brown with a couple of nice steelhead. two of 9 we caught that day. Weather conditions were terrible but we all had fun!
