~8 lb native, released unharmed...

Margie's first Steelhead in 2010!

I love to take my daughter fishing with me but work schedules and such often get in the way. We were finally able to get a weekend together and sure enough, before I could get the driftboat settled in and my rod rigged she slammed into this nice native. Quick photo and back into the river...
