Good Steelhead, Great Steelhead

“The great ones are the fish that, if they don’t break your tackle, they’ll push its limits. At the end of the battle, whether you pick up the pieces of your broken rod, or get the fish in the net, you’re out of breath and your chest can hardly contain its pounding heart.” Gary Lewis in the Eugene, Oregon Register-Guard.
Notice he doesn’t include “bad steelhead.”
