I am preparing a write up from the day today as well as some photos to share with you. But I know everyone wants to see the movie first….and I really do enjoy delivering.

This movie features two angles during the fight with the big fish. Big thanks to Kirby Cannon of PDXSALMONJUNKIE.com for the GoPro he fitted me with and also to one of my oldest and best friends, Pete Burgess aka Big Burge. He was a helluva First Mate today. Next time the bends are on your rod, Burge.

    Damn, those were both some very respectable fish. I guess you should be checking the kind of knot that you are using after losing that first one…..you use a clinch knot don’t you? Anyway, that second fish was a beauty and the photography was great. Flashing silver and jade green water go well together. Sal

  7. Very nice video guys! One stubborn feisty chromer there. The aerial on that first one was great!! Love the fishermans eye view filming, looking right over that rod bent to the cork!! Looks like a fine day steelhead fishing in the Northwest to me!!

    Nookslayer I’m glad you ‘Got it’. Of course I have that music too. I was hoping the Pun would reveal itself.

  9. The Hustler says:
