Captain Tom took a break from desk work and headed for the Olympic Peninsula to develop his spey casting skills with old friend and expert fly fishing guide JD Love. The results were typical of winter steelhead fishing with a fly. One fish hooked and lost by the trainee (me). One fish hooked and landed by the expert – JD. It was cold but sunny and, unlike the Minnesota contingent of AU, we fished in liquid water – no drilling holes through the surface.
