Staying sane as a steelhead guide is about keeping the faith. Every morning while I eat a jalapeno and cheddar cheese bagel and drink a cup of coffee I believe, no matter how yesterday went, that today is going to epic. Every time I have a client step into a run I smell steelhead, and keep the faith. No fish, no matter, I have faith in the next run and the next.
Likewise, you have to keep the faith to be a good steelhead angler. Have faith in your fly, have faith in your swing and have faith that there is a steelhead in front of that juicy looking rock. No fish, no worries just keep fishing and keep the faith.
Here are some photos from last week to get you juices flowing.There are still a couple weeks left in the 2013 Winter Steelhead Season. Get out there have faith and enjoy yourself. All you can do is fish good water well. Like some help know what that entails? Give us a call at Deschutes Angler Fly Shop (541)395-0995, we still have a couple openings left for the 2013 season.
