I was on the Babine River for the 1st time in my life. Tyler, Randy, Shannon and I were dropping into the canyon for a 10 day float trip. The Babine River, is part of the Skeena system in Northern British Columbia and is known for some of the largest steelhead in the world. We were jumping into this expedition with 2 rafts, a hand drawn map of the rapids and enough food and fly fishing gear to give us a shot at a fish of a lifetime. I also had added a spey rod to my gear list for the first time in my life, not knowing that it would change my fly experience forever.
We would all catch our largest steelhead of our lives this trip.
