Yesterday I had the pleasure of helping this little guy land his first Steelhead ever! This is Dallas Payton. He's a diehard! He fished and tried very hard all day in the rain to learn and develop the skills to catch his own Steelhead side drifting. From developing a cast to identification on what he was feeling while drifting and how to maintain his drift as well. His father and I are extremely proud of him for his diligence and devotion to the goal he achieved. It is a pleasure to teach motivated, attentive little anglers. Dallas wanted it and it showed folks because he LISTENED TO HIS GUIDE. I am overjoyed to help his dream come true. The Clearwater River in Idaho is giving us some real banger bucks this year! If you want one like this send a message and we'll go get after it. I am guiding for Swiftwater Outfitters and we have a few days left available for big b-run Clearwater River Steelhead.
