This is Nick English and his 37lb steelhead caught and released in the Kispiox River in British Columbia. Nick is the founder and president of the Gallatin Flycasters a group on campus (Montana State) promoting and teaching the sport of fly-fishing.
Ben Pierce wrote a great article about him here at Chronicle Outdoors.
There you go boys and girls…one ultra hairy, crazy looking but very good reason to go to Montana State. Now wipe the drool off your keyboard and get tying some steelhead patterns.
I lived in BC for a couple of months and never got a line wet…crap.
