With my index finger I feel the tension on my line and I think: stay focused on your fly, feel the tension that increases as the drift is relaxed and the rest will do the Steelhead. The bite is strong and precise. I strike hard and the reel starts to moans while a lot of my line runs to the other shore. It is a beautiful steelhead and after ten minutes ends in Seth's landing net. It will be the first of 18 fights that will bring 13 Steelheads will end up in the nets of my guides. And 3 of them will be caught in dry fly! It was a magnificent fishing vacation! An amazing environment, a company of unique friends and a couple of expert and professional guides allowed me to enjoy the most beautiful fishing in the world, that of the Steelhead!
