Summer Steelhead and Tiger Lily

10 pound Summer Steelhead

Tiger Lily or Lilium Columbianum named after the mighty Columbia River
Here's a summer steelhead I caught two days ago on a 2/3 ounce Red-dotted Calf Tail Teardrop High Mountain Blaze-spoon with yellow hook feathers.  It's a limited edition lure from Arkansas circa 1950, and that day it was the only thing in the entire universe steelhead shadows would bite.  I was just lucky I found the lure at a yard sale near the river for a fish story and a quarter.
