Getting ready tho head up to the Smith River on the coast of the Northern CA to fish with Kevin Brock for steelhead.  I fished him 2 years ago and caught this 20.5 pounder and another around 12 pounds.  If you get a chance check out his web site  He's been slayin fish since the 1st of January and it looks to be nice weather for us when we're there. 

Banner Day

I had a chance to get out to pyramid on new years eve and the last day of 2010 was pretty good to me.  When I started fishing around 8 am it was 11 degrees out and never really got above 25 the rest of the day.  The day started out pretty slow and then around the 2 o'clock hour the bite turned on.  I ended up with 9 fish on the day.  I missed 3 other bites and lost 2 that were hooked.  It was one hell of a cold day but man was it a blast.  So cold in fact that my reel was freezing up solid, I had to land quite a few by stripping.
