How To: Hand Land A Steelhead Like a Pro.

Step 1: Grab the fish gingerly by the tail.
Step 2: Pass fish between legs to your other hand.
Step 3: Use fingertips to play leader like a flute.
Step 4: Initiate leg lift to step over fiddled line.
Step 5: Swift Kick
Step 6: Celebrate the completion of your beautiful maneuver and let someone who has a clue net it.
Fortunately: Luke caught and released this awesome steelhead.  Unfortunately still confused and disheveled I messed up the filming and we have no footage of the actual fish.
My gracefulness knows no bounds.
