2013 Spring Carp/Steelhead

This spring steelhead run was another miss unfortunately. Long winter, cold spring and very high stream conditions made fishing difficult. I did not start until sometime in April when the rivers were already congested with rough fish and steelhead were finishing their sexual activities. That Spring I caught literally 2 “two” steelheads but unfortunately the pics came out so horrible that no amount of creative air brushing and editing would make them publishable. I unloaded my frustration on suckers and carp which were cooperative and put a blast of a fight on an 8wt fly rod.
