With a desire to fish and time off to burn I decided to venture North for the morning drift. Keeping with the 2007 theme the river was in extremely poor shape which left my options limited.
I arrived on the edge of a cold front that was harbouring 50-70km gusts of Arctic like air. Down in the river valley there was minor reprieve from the gale force winds and infrequent snow squalls. Today was indeed Winter steelheading and I wouldn't of had it any other way. Perseverance and sheer stupidity rewarded me with my quarry.
