Dave's Native Rainbow

This beauty took a bead head prince nymph on a dead drift about 20 yds downstream of a very wide riffle/rapid line. The take was subtle, but the fight was spectaular on a 4 wt. rod (the first rod I built). Technically, the Oregon DFW would classify this fish as a steelhead because it was larger than 20".
