11 year old fly fisher lands trophy Klamath River steelhead, enters Shasta Trout “Hawg of Fame”

Hank lands another lunker Klamath River Steelhead, enters Shasta Trout's November 20th

Hank, an eleven year old fly fisher, landed a trophy Klamath River Steelhead while on a fishing trip with his father, brother and both his grandfathers at the Klamathon Lodge.  Hank also landed a steelhead on a dry fly while visiting the Klamathon Lodge for the Salmonfly hatch in June which was his first entry in the Hawg of Fame that includes a video of the battle taken by his father.

Not many anglers lay claim to an adult steelhead on a dry and then follow it up with a trophy Steelhead in fall, not only in the same season but on their next visit.   This fine fish allows Hank to again join his father Mike and grandfather Ed in Shasta Trout’s Hawg of Fame. They are our first and only three generation entry!
