Steelhead on Dead Drift Green Drakes?

I have a little confession to make... I'm going deep into BC tomorrow to visit my friends Roy Tanami and Hannah Belford at the Damdochax lodge. Shhhh, don't tell Deeter.

Hannah and her mother - (yes, I said mother) Alice have run this camp for a long time and I feel honored to be invited up. I have never caught a west coast steelhead and am incredibly excited by the prospect.

I found this insane footage by flyboysfishing.com while doing my usual web browsing and decided that this might be the nuttiest piece of steelhead fishing I've ever seen. While I have no delusions about catching a steelhead on a dead drift dry I am giddy about the trip.

Enjoy the film and I'll do my damnedest to shoot back some photos and stories over the next week.
