Exactly one year ago, this fish was the clincher for me.
First swung steelhead on a spey rod.
I'd like to personally thank this specific fish for sealing my fate as a steelhead nut. Once hooked, I wanted to land this hen more than any other fish in my life. It transferred the hook right into my mouth
3 new spey rods, multiple lines, hours and hours on the vice and thousands of casts later, it's been a great year learning my way through the swinging game.
