Chasing steelhead on dries in the Skeena system

First, I would like to thank the folks on this forum that helped guide me in my quest to chase steelies on dries in the Skeena drainage. Second, the Canadians were helpful, positive and always willing to share what they knew with a newbie. Finally, I pulled it off with only buying 60 gallons of gas and living out of my Prius making it affordable despite the fees being charged to fish every day on classified waters.
The weather, people and fishing were all amazing! I managed even a few on drag free presentations, but mostly fluttering and skating and greased lined when all else failed. I can't wait to get back next year to revisit old haunts and finds new ones. Dimitri Gammer deserves credits on several of these photos since my camera died on me. Enjoy!

Nice fish and glad you had a good trip north. We all have the love of chasing steel in common. I spent some time on Kispiox and Copper this year and met some great people on both rivers. Got some great fishing time in with folks from Florida to Alaska and the fellow that introduced me to them was from Nova Scotia. Good people all and the fishing is the thread that draws us. Hope we all enjoy many more years of it and I get one on a skater next year,or the next year.
