Welcome back to Three-Word Thursday, where Fish Hack is waiting for the first real storm in464 days to get it on and get it off so Hack can start stalking steelhead like any underachiever worth a garage full of empties should be.
Gotta catch that February steelhead and keep the streak alive.
Streak. Avocation. Gem.
Fish Hack and Fish Wrap shooter extraordinaire Jaime Lusch were wasting time lamenting at the low flows in the Rogue River — Fish Hack’s home waters — when we realized Hack has caught at least one steelhead in every month since June.
That puts Hack four months away from catching a steelhead in the same river every month for a year.
The Rogue is one of the few rivers in the world where that’s an option, let alone an avocation.
One of Hack’s best qualities is a distinct lack of goals. But living along this gem of a resource makes Hack think catching at least one Rogue steelhead per month for the rest of this-here run at the Fish Wrap ought to be the one.
