This shouldn’t happen, ever…

First day, first run, maybe my first or second cast steelheading and this unbelievable 20lb buck was in my hands.

I was shaking and smiling and almost crying. People wait their entire lives for a fish like this. Not sure why it fell in my lap like this but I’m not arguing.

I’m not able to post again until I’m out of the bush, but will give a complete update when I return.
