Photo of the day: Steelhead from Above

This unusual perspective on a steelhead is all about the spots.

I had a good friend come down from Vermont last weekend. He had turned me on to fly fishing a long time ago, and I took the day off from guiding so we could spend some time together fishing… a rare treat. After catching a few steelies swinging tiny white streamers, I switched to an large olive bunny leech. You can still see the fly sticking out of this cool-looking male steelhead.
