i get it now. honestly. i really do get it. why we stand in the rain/sleet /snow. why we hike all over hell's half acre. All those hours learning to read the water, learning the lures, the presentations and then searching all the pockets,riffles and tail-outs. i've caught a couple steelies this year, nice sizers 7-9lbs. but today w/ the wife and the dog as my witnesses I truely get it. it took a 15-18lbs buck (wife thinks bigger) w/ a big red stipe down his side for me to finally get it. but i do. if I can get the images off the phone I'll post them. I'm gobsmacked really.never thought i'd get one the size you see in magazines but...... now i get it. :D ;D 8) big thanks to all those who've posted the hints. not many have come out and said this is how and now I get it. it's the learning curve and the search that make the end result that much more rewarding. thanks again

yup that worked. Sorry the pics are small and dirty. my camera phone is a little old.for perspective, i'm 6'1" 225lbs. I make most things look a little small and my hand measuring from tip of thumb to tip of pinkie across the palm is 9 1/2". and the portion of my hand that you see in the pic below , from finger under the gill to wrist is 7". I figure it was 30-34" fish.

Nice fish, from what we can see of it ;) ;D

Thats why I invested in a waterproof camera, worth every penny, you'll never miss out on that pic with the giant fishies! Even then a good ziploc bag will keep our regular digi camera dry, even if you go swimming. Right Rib ;) ::)

Those big buggers catch you surprise don't they? Good job on the steel!
