When my buddy visited net it the steelhead rose one last time. He lunged to try and get the net beneath him but it didn't work. The rim of the net knocked the fly from his mouth and also he was off.
To today I'm unsure how long it took to obtain that fish to the side of the boat but it was by much the battle of a life time for me. Both perceptions I have from the battle is just how frequently he appeared of the water as well as exactly how much my lower arms were shedding.
