    managed to catch my first steelhead out of a river this weekend. caught on a spawn sac fished underneath a float. it was quite the thrill, but i'd rank it below a big flathead. payed off to target a cold water species while getting my fishing fix for the weekend. m.

    used an 8'6" Bass Pro brand rod that i got years ago. i can see why many guys use 10' plus rods, but went with the one i already owned. m.
