Well, I'm envious! I had a real tough season. In four and a half days of fishing pretty hard, my biggest fish was a sixteen inch brown trout - a nice brown in the little creeks near my home, but not what I was looking for up north. Beautiful steelhead - congratulations!

I thought I'd add my own fall recap with the disclaimer that none of these fish were actually caught on flies with a fly line. They were mainly yarn flies, which I'm not sure qualify as "flies", and one came on hardware. Still a nice fall recap though.

Very nice picts and reports guys...

Heres one from "out east" in upstate NY...

Dad and I made about 5 trips up for salmon and steelies. First few trips were mostly salmon with the last few being phenominal for steel... Most fish were caught on egg patterns and a few on big stones...

Heres an up river morning shot. My fathers the 4th dude up.

That river can be a zoo, especially during the salmon runs. With walking you can usually find some solitude. That day we joined the madness at the lower end of the river because a big pod of steel had come in, think I hooked 9 and landed 3 and my dad was 3-7. And they were scary fresh and gobbling up eggs...

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
