Hi, I’m Dave.
I have been in those steelhead runs for hours on end waiting for the first pull of a powerful fish. That first tug, tip or tap. That little indication that you are doing something right.
I know it’s challenging because I have been there. I have also been on the other side and felt the buzz of hooking into a bunch of fish in one session. The knowledge that you hooked a steelhead in the run you just fished, and can go back tomorrow in the same spot and do it again.
It’s addicting. I’ve been fly fishing for trout and steelhead for most of my life. I grew up around a fly fishing shop and have been guiding for about as long as I could row a boat. Now that I’ve connected with tools to bring this information online, I am trying to be that virtual guide for you. Virtual?? I know, not sure if that’s the right word?
Why should you read this site?
The answer is simple – Sharing the techniques and tools I’ve learned for steelhead fly fishing is my passion. You will see shortly, that there won’t be anything left out. I hope you can handle some personal stories, because I think they will help you.

Finding fish, making a good cast and putting in the time until your first hookup are all big humps to get over. Maybe you have been trout fishing for years, but want to try steelheading?
