Well, this is my first post and I owe you folks a story. How about my first guided stealhead trip? About 15 years ago my brother and I went out fishing with a guide on the clackamas we were having a great day finding lots of fish. the guide was explaining the benefits of leaving the rods in the holders when all of the sudden his rod goes flying out of the boat!!!! we searched for that rod for quite a while and finnally spotted it the guide used an oar to get it within reach when he got the rod back in the boat the fish was still hooked. we landed that fish and I have been hooked on stealhead from then on.
