I'm thinking steelhead since the OP said "lots of color". Having a hard time picturing a springer with lots of color in april, plus it's not like it would be that unusual for there to be a large buck...

soul-searching right now; need encouragement

This is my second winter of steelhead fishing. At the start, I just decided to commit to flyfishing, and try to learn "steelheading" and spey fishing/spey casting at the same time. I've yet to try...

Perfect reel for a Burkie 7134-4 P ?

I hacked-away at winter steelhead last winter as a first-timer with an entry-level rod and reel. I promised myself if I caught my first fish, I'd buy a new rod. I realize there's not much logic in...
