Nicely colored up hen, probably has been in the creek a few weeks. Very strong fish, jumped repeatedly and almost put me in the backing.

You can see the deeper colored areas - that is where the steelhead like to lie - I have no idea why I look like such a doofus in this picture.

You know, Matt, I wasn't sure what you were referring to here at first...I didn't see past that fish...It's sort of like one of them women with a Shakespearian balcony telling you, "Hey. Hey buddy. My eyes are up here!":)

Spence,

Yea, I understand that. I'm the same way - if somebody sends me fish porn I look at the fish and after I go to the next picture I couldn't tell you if the guy was wearing a hat or not.

Thanks, Matt. I'll send back some of my favorite nymphs/eggs.
