If any of you bass boys doubt the beauty of steelhead fishing, go ahead and say so.

No arguments here. Having grown up, literally, on the banks of a thousand Oklahoma farm ponds largemouth bass will always be my default fish.However, I am under no illusions as to its fighting qualities compared to other gamefish.I do have some angling goals before I die, and learning to fish for steelhead in some of those western rivers is one of them.April's just a beautiful girl but man, what a fish...I have to say, and it's no knock on April, but confronted with two such lovely midlife crisis ideals in one photograph, I'm old enough and have lost just enough of my youthful lecherous nature to choose the fish.My wife understands this. I've always warned her that I'd never leave her for the young, hot trophy girlfriend and the flashy phallic car, but she damn sure better watch out for the fish and the birds...

Yeah, I agree that this one is more natural looking and less "posed" than the last one...although, they're both nice fish, and it doesn't matter to me what she wears to fish in as long as she's fishing.But my one question is this:Has April got a boyfriend? Dang! Talk about the best of both worlds...Hot, and a Fly fisher(Wo)man. Nice!
