Massive steelhead caught on video

If, like me, you’ve never caught a steelhead, this video goes a long way to capturing how exciting it must be to hook into one of the bigger ones on fairly light tackle. What a fish!

It’s interesting to see how they fish the pools from a boat, travelling quite quickly with the stream and flicking the fly into any likely-looking spots, watching the indicator for any signs of a take. Exciting stuff!

This isn’t a new video – it was made in 2014 – but that doesn’t make it any less exciting.

Celebrating the catch - big fish video

The action is worth waiting for and I love this celebration!!
