To this day I'm uncertain just how long it required to obtain that fish sideways of the boat yet it was by far the battle of a lifetime for me. The 2 impressions I have from the fight is just how often he came out of the water and also just how much my lower arms were melting.
When I first began fishing for steelhead, I saw fly fishermen mentioned it in 2 statistics: variety of fish hooked and also number landed. This ended up being painfully evident to me on that day but in a good means. It makes feeling to intend to consist of a fish like that in your record. Although there isn't a picture to verify the dimension, it doesn't take means from the encounter.
