It's been a weird summer thus far, weather wise anyways. The North just about blew out at one point and the air-temps have been very mild. The fishing has stayed pretty consistant, fish hard, cover a lot of water and you'll find some.
We've seen some spectacular rises, chases, runs, cartwheels, leaps and one lost scandi head and a lot of running line and backing. The fish have been on the extra hot side this year.
It's crazy how, looking back at these photos brings me back to that exact moment and I can remember every little detail of what happened.
The out-of-the-blue, water-clearing rise of a steelhead is my favorite, Tim got all that on his first and he didn't jerk, awesome Tim. Congrats.
Though it's been a weird and wild one, everything seems to be settling down and getting back to normal, no complaints on my end.
