3/3 all live release.

 

I was surprised they were still around but when you have the day free and it's perfect conditions you just go right.

 

I spotted three boils during the day while walking the river and each time I sneak up behind some cover and cast a spinner and it goes BOOM!. The first fish of the year I though was a twig (rusty) until the line went ZZZZZZZ.

 

No net because I was not really expecting to catch monsters and fishing solo so had to let the first go with pliers right in the water. No worries there going back anyways.

 

The second I had to get a pix so there I am balancing so I don't fall in trying to work the phone while rushing to get the fish back asap. Could have done a better job for Mr steel but he swam off fine so better to be alive and a little muddy.

Nice fish! I've had a lot of fun the last week or so finally getting the hang of fly fishing for steelhead and catching them on my own ties! It's been a funny year, but still fortunate enough to have some hanging around the tribs
