I'm thinking about getting out for a few days of winter steelheading soon. I don't want much. If I could come anywhere near this steelhead I'd almost never need to fish again--almost. This fish is one my father caught a long time ago. His friend was written up in the same newspaper article this photo was featured in. In the space of a week, my Dad landed this fish at 23 pounds 10 ounces and his friend landed a 23 pound 12 ounce steelie and another of 26 pound 4 ounces--incredible.
