Wild Steelhead United - Myers

Wild Steelheaders United- Myers from Trout Unlimited on Vimeo.

Wild Steelheaders United was established to educate and mobilize the numerous wild steelhead advocates wanting to engage in the Initiative. It is a place where anglers can become more informed about wild steelhead biology and ecology, keep abreast policy issues, and learn about Trout Unlimited's conservation work. We may not always agree. We may not always have the answers. But we steelheaders share a common vision and for the future of wild steelhead. Together, we are a community with strength. With millions of dollars invested on the ground, Trout Unlimited supports this vision through the Wild Steelhead Initiative. Learn more at and

Don't Wade Deep To Cast Farther

Don’t think that wading deep is the answer to getting a little extra distance on the cast. A deep wading position decreases the vertical distance from the rod tip (while in the firing position) to your anchor (the place where the line hits the water at the bottom of the D loop).  The couple of feet you may gain by wading out further will often be lost in the cast, as wading reduces the height of the D loop and negatively impacts its shape and size.  In most cases, wading to knee deep not beyond is the ideal. I see clients all the time slowly start creeping out deeper and deeper with each cast, Guides call them "Creepers" - don't be a creeper.
