Initially I was a little bit anxious with this new endeavor. I had actually come across people turning flies for many years prior to they landed their first fish. One more reason for my concern was that I really did not desire to turned into one of those anglers that turned nose up at any person that didn't suggest to his certain method of doing points.
I needed to go up stream a fair bit to get to the area where I could go across. A natural spill method had actually produced a shallower section that at low water was passable. When I started crossing the deeper part, I tripped as well as the fish appeared of my hand as well as back right into the river. I didn't wait a 2nd. I pursued it going initially! This was my very first steelhead on the swing and also I would certainly be damned to view it return down the river. Plus, I had actually just eliminated it and also really did not want this fish to have actually passed away in vain.
