I needed to go up stream fairly a bit to obtain to the place where I could go across. A natural spill method had actually developed a shallower part that at reduced water was passable. When I started crossing the deeper section, I tripped and the fish appeared of my hand as well as back into the stream. I really did not think twice a second. I went after it going initially! This was my first steelhead on the swing and I would certainly be damned to see it go back down the stream. Plus, I had actually simply killed it and also didn't want this fish to have passed away in vain.
After numerous getaways, (I won't admit to exactly how several) a buddy as well as I headed out for a mid-afternoon journey to my neighborhood swing opening to view if I might finally crack my dry spell. We didn't have very much time so we were going to fish 2 runs after that head house.
