In search of steel….

Yesterday I mentioned that I was hitting the upper Rogue during the afternoon in search of summer steelhead. I’ve written a lot about float and flies lately, but it’s one of the methods I haven’t given much time. I haven’t even caught as much as a trout using them.

Well that all changed yesterday. All though I didn’t find any steelhead, I managed to put a couple bends in my rod.

My first fish coming to a fly. Although small it let me know I was doing something right.

Second fish was a little jack salmon.

Even though no steel came to hand it was still nice to gain a little confidence in the method. Hopefully October will produce my first steelhead on a fly.

Tight Lines….
