I was was very please to find some fish in a river I’ve never fished befor. This big old summer run was not my intended target that’s for sure and I hope that  after a quick battle and a safe release he goes on to fertilize eggs to help ensure a future steelhead population on this magical piece of water ..

I’ve spent many days and weeks in the mountains with JAMES chasing stone sheep to mountain lions . But never a day on the river. This was his first steelhead EVER. It was pretty cool to help a friend put another notch in the belt!

So how many of you have caught the same fish back to back?? This little fella was super aggressive I knew there was multiple fish holding in this run. First cast a pick him up and after taking a quit wet iPhone pick we let the hole settle, the second cast through the run my buddy’s bobber went  down the fish rolled and I could see the black patch behind his dorsal fin. With a few head shakes it was gone.. after another beer on the bank and a presentation change I was my turn again . Once again on the first cast my float went under this time I was able to grab the tail for a second pick. Who would have though this one fish would get tricked 3 times in a row...#sillyfish #hungrylittlefella #patchfish #steelhead #wetgopro #twopics #samefishtwice #rainyday #wintersteelheading #riverfishing #floatdown #pnwonderland #chooseyourwater #westcoastisbestcoast #vancouverisland #iguidebc
