I have many hobbies, but my passion is fishing. I live in an area called Steelhead Alley. It is a fishery that anglers come to from around the globe. Below is a video I shot from 2 weekends ago.

I am the guy in the green wading jacket.

Yeah the music isn't setting the mood for peace and quiet. Or solitude and serenity...haha! :D

Very nice video Steelhead! I love fishing and this video has me salivating to get out and drop a line in the water. In a couple of months I will be out ice fishing and will try to post some pics.

None the less, still a fun vid to watch. I'm mostly a salt water fisher, so the winter is no fishing for me. :(

I love to go fishing with my dad and my kids! My dad and I always go trout fishing in the winter here, they stock the local river, and we put on 10 layers of clothes under our waders, and jump right in! Last winter I fell in and we had to end our trip short, but we still had fun. Our trout are much smaller here, usually the biggest ones are around 10-14 inches long. Somewhere I have a pic posted of myself in my waders! Lots of fun, can't wait for December so I can go fishing! ;)

I am looking forward to getting my son into fishing. He is 3 years old now. I think this spring I will get him started on bluegill, crappie and perch. I am kinda a fanatic about the fishery here and am often found every weekend early in the morning standing in water streamside. I make a trip yearly to Canada for King Salmon. This year was a blast.

My buddies landed some nice ones!

I was behind the camera most of the time this year, but this is one I landed last year.

Unfortunately there is only one decent trout stream in my home state. The good thing is, I live about 5 minutes away from it! The local Trout Unlimited chapter stocks it every year with rainbows and browns. So about 4-5 times a year I run up there and grab a few for the grill. I think I have 4 left in my freezer right now. It's nothing like what Steelhead has but hey, its still fun!

That's a nice fish right there. I've never caught a steelhead. Any idea what that one weighed?

Probably around 10-12 pounds. He gave me a great fight!

have you ever tried Striper fishing? I've fished for them on Lake Cumberland, Cumberland River and Watts Bar Lake, TN. By far hardest fighting freshwater fish I've run into so far. My biggest as of right now weighed 18 lbs. I'd like to crack 20 lbs some day.

Never had the opportunity to get onto any Stripers. The hardest fighting freshwater fish I have ever had the opportunity to come in contact with is the King Salmon. When your trying to land a 35-40 lb salmon on 15 pound line, it is truly a challenge and fun time! :cheers:

I love striper fishing. There is a smal population in my local lake which is about 5 minutes from the house or we run north about an hour and a half and hit Texoma. Lots of stripers. I have to say though the hardest hitting/fighting freshwater fish I have run into is a Peacock Bass. What a blast catching those.

I love catching striper on a flyrod. The only fishing I do is fly fishing. I trout fish year round, its not uncomman to find me on a mountian stream. I have had job offers at two high profile guide services but said no. If I was single though it would have been a different story. Anybody ever tried trout fishing at night? You wanna talk about monsters

Landshark, as much as blackwater fishes some of those palces he could tell you the exact placement of every tree, hole, and rock blindfolded! They also make glow-in-the-dark fly line, that coupled with a head-light and you're good to go for the most part.

@Tigress, the way we fish when we take the kids is to get live bait, usually worms! Then we just let them drown a few worms, and catch a few little fish and then they are happy. We reserve our serious fishing for kid free times, it is too hard to do the necessary moving around and staying quiet and patience when the kids are with us! ;)
