A Steelhead 4-pack

While Rathbun was off on location in B.C. we took advantage of a break in the Pineapple Express to hit an OP trib with our old pal and Asheville native Lance Goodgion. Despite being a lifelong angler and Harker's Albie master, Lance had never fished for steelhead until our excursion last week.

Things did not look promising when we first arrived but the river was on the drop and we had our first steelhead to hand within 10 minutes. We went on to hook 7 or 8 more, landed four, including 2 for our rookie steelheader.

In between steelhead and Lance's 15 minute tussle with a fair hooked 20 plus pound King, we also landed a ton of beautiful Dollies

Nothing in the world quite like your first steelhead.

Steelhead Firsts

Because we know how exciting busting the steelhead cherry can be, we've created a new Chum category.  Congratulations to Bill for his first (hatchery fish).

I was fishing a single hand rod, nymphing a stone fly without an indictor because it (the indicator) fell off a few casts earlier. The fish measured 32" and 10 lbs.
