Floating Line Winter Steelhead
Conditions were low and clear and I had the right fisherman in my boat, Bryan Sohl. The Sohl Man. When I suggested fishing a floater Bryan got a wild look in his eye. He rigged his Scandi head with a 15 foot tapered mono leader and a little unweighted claret GP looking bug tied on a 1.5 AJ. We were BS'ing our way through the run... the rest is predictable. Fish on! Yank yank yank yank splash... Fish off. F***! That was awesome!!!! etc. For some big head shakes and a roll Bryan was connected to a heavy fish using utterly summer gear and technique. The connection was beautiful and amazing.
