Took my buddy from Florida, Steelhead fishing for the first time. We were bankin it, fishin with one small corky and a red bead. We Both hit double didgets on the Steelhead and got run down the river more than once by some (pretty dark) Chinookie... We were fishing 10#.

"you gotta run...go for it...see yah, bye."
Thank gawd he didn't land any of them so we didn't have to take a picture of his "First Salmon". Still he's in love. It was a total hoot. Thinks this happens all the time in Gods Country. I couldn't lie...I told him yes.

Hmmmm...I wonder if anyone else from Florida will now suddenly show up at my "secret river"...the Cowlitz.

Anybody from Florida who is impressed with fishing in the Northwest obviously hasn't fished much in Florida (or isn't a very good fisherman?).

Don't get me wrong, I love it here, and I may never even visit Florida again after being born and living there for 24 years (Miami is a cesspool), but there is just no comparison between the fishing in the Florida Keys/Everglades/10,000 islands and the PacNW.

Cool that you put him on fish though :cheers:
