An incredible trip, something that I will have to do again, many more times in my life. After school got out at the end of April, The Tug, Dantès, a lurker, and I headed down to Southern Southeast to chase wild steelhead for 19 days. We got disoriented on logging roads, added several hundred miles to the odometers, slept under tarps and the back of trucks, drank copious quantities of beer and whiskey, and got heavily rained (and lightly snowed) on for almost the entire time. But every second of the trip was completely worth it. Checked out different towns, explored different river systems, and caught lots of fish.
The following is a collection of this journey, and is a mish-mash of each of our photos. There's over 100 photos to upload, so this is gonna have to be done in 4 or so parts. I'll try to post them in a timely manner, unlike the delay in making this TR.....
