Almost lost one a couple weeks before that too got the rod before it got drug in that time. I think that's why he has 8 rods in his kayak he say its because he dont like to have keep switching methods so he set up for all applications, but I beg to differ! ;)

    "American River steelhead
    are the largest ones found in the Central Valley system, due to their Eel River ancestry and excellent forage conditions found on the America. A fisherman tossing out a Little Cleo in February 2002 caught and released a wild steelhead/rainbow weighing 24.02 pounds, the largest ever documented on the American."
    Any thing is Possible as long as your line is in the Right water, Right Time .Right Spot

    A Life spent fishing, is never wasted.
