March 17-20, 2014
Back from 3 1/2 cold days (single digits in the morning) on the Salmon River, steelhead fishing. I got to try out my Scott A3 10′ 7wt, which proved to be a winner for roll casting and fighting great lakes steel. The first two days were good to me, landing two the first day, including a 32″ pig (around 13-14 lbs), my biggest to date. I landed 4 more on tuesday, plus hooked another big boy that took me down stream and threw the hook on a jump. Unfortunately, the last day and half, i couldnt hook a fish to save my life! Todd picked up the slack, and even though i was using the same flies (small stones), i couldn’t get a fish to eat. A good trip in all, time to rest my arm after roll casting a few thousand times, and battling a few fish. I can’t wait to go back next year!
