Well like a foul I just couldn't stop, not yet, no way just had to go north for that last horray. So, I gave my good buddy Brad from the Soo North Fly shop a call and asked him if I could room in for a couple days and that I was looking for a good guide. Just kidding we both know he's going to be doing the guiding. So after a six hours of driving and two Xlarge Timmie's coffee I crossed the Sault St Marie International Bridge and peered out my window in total amazement.

They say persistence perseveres and you got to put your time in to get those good days. Thought it wasn't ever gonna happen but finally I got that day.
I arrived at the river a little later then I normally would after sun rise not before like I usually do. But believe it or not I was still the 1st one to the river. After about the 5th swing bang! Tyeing into my 1st steelie on the swing. Landed a nice 3 Pound fish and thought hey think I will take a picture. Took my camera out and guess what? Dead batteries lol here I go again, if it wasn't for bad luck I would have no luck at all. My cell phone was buried deep in my waders so I let the fish go so that not to hurt it.
Well it ended up a double digit day on the fly rod with a couple float fisherman beside me only taking a couple fish. Take that you float fisherman lol just kidding. There are days when the fly rod can be more productive then the float and this was one of those days.
