In Washington it is illegal to remove a wild steelhead, either intended to be released or required by law, completely from the water.Kinda sours the moment from something exciting to breaking the law which is a bummer.
Hey Anonymous, you are right. In the heat of the moment, i had forgotten that. Next time i will be more careful. I have posted my full confession athttp://www.flyfishergirl.com/?p=1009. Thank you for reminding me of the law, and i am sorry for being ignorant.
Just a good reminder for all of us to make sure we are well aware of the regulations when we are fishing new waters. Thanks for responding Hannah.
Hannah - I feel you! When the adrenaline rushes it's easy to forget law and protocol. That doesn't take away from these beautiful photos - keep doing your dance!SabrinaSheLovesFlyFishing.com
