Intruders for Steel Tying creativity for its own sake. jThe first time I fly-fished FOR STEELHEAD WAS on a warm February day on a small stream just outside Vancouver, British Columbia. Although I was happy just to have a cast turn over and to shoot some line, my fishing buddy landed two hot, chrome, wild winter fish.

WE WERE DRIVING OVER A DIRT-ROAD PASS THROUGH Wyoming’s Salt River mountains: two muddy wheel ruts running next to the stream we’d fished that afternoon, which this high up the drainage was narrow enough to straddle. It was near sunset on a clear September evening, and as we started down the back side of the pass the valley ahead of us was a bowl of purple shade trimmed in gold. Doug reached over and turned on the GPS unit in the pickup. A meandering red line stretching to a digital horizon appeared on the screen and a female voice said, “Street name unknown.”
