Coastal Winter Steelhead

I was just lurking in the bushes watching my girlfriend (totally non-creepily) and decided to film for a moment... turns out...

Capturing the take was pretty cool and I get more excited watching her hook a fish than when I do! Anyways, here's a quicky from last month-

What do you mean you release the fish after you catch it? Like, release it into your cooler right ?!?!

Wicked Cool!

Looks like she got a little emotional after the release! It happens.

What a great moment, and how lucky for you to have captured that for her!

The grab is the best part, isn't it?

I have a strong sense and betting that "you" are to be congratulated, too. You set her up, got a good camera angle. Waited for it. You knew there was a fish there !!!! Love it ---Great day, great pal, great fish.

Thanks all! I don't always share these little short stories, so it's a welcomed outlet here to spread some stoke!

I'd be lying if I said I never have afterwards! But man, the grab reigns true!

I might have pulled her arm a tad here and there, but she's been cutting her teeth on this thing we're all so attached to out on the water- and sometimes we just get a little lucky too! Besides, I picked her pocket the day before so I happily took the sidelines on this one
