I met Chris through leader Shawn Randles. He came on our first annual Hooke On Life camping trip. Click the linked to read more about that trip. Chris had been dying to catch a steelhead. After the Hooked On Life trip he bought his first fly rod and was ready to put it to test. I had an afternoon availble that fit both of our schedules, so we hit the Rogue for an afternoon hoping to find some fish. 

Chris caught on quickly how to nymph for steelhead. The fish were pretty picky today, but he was persistent and at the end of the day in the last hole he connected and came away with his first steelhead. It was such an awesome moment when I scooped that fish into the net!
