The "eat"

It doesnt matter how old you are or how many Steelhead you have caught in your life, the moment of the "eat" or hookup just doesnt get old.  The feeling of having a Steelhead grab your offering is just downright kick ass, it never gets old.  This feeling is why I like to fish, it is a short little blast of adrenline-feels even better when it has been below 20 degrees for almost a month!  Sure, its nice to get the fish to the net-but pretty much everything after the "eat" is rather gravy or just not as rad.



  1. The old adage that the "tug is the drug" is certainly true for me. Nothing like that electric charge of realizing you have some pissed off steel on the other end.

  2. Happy Holidays Brad! Keep up the great work.
