Lets get One Thing Straight….That’s not me casting in the Header photos. That’s Greg Holt. The photos were taken by his son Steve Holt.

Greg wrote an article  about Sustained Anchor Casting for Linespeedjedi.com last month. See it here.  Steve has taken many of the photos featured on this site and blog.  He can also be seen in many of the photos with the fish he caught and photographed with his dad.  

This beautiful Steelhead was landed and photographed by Steve and Greg Holt.
This beautiful Steelhead was landed and photographed by Steve and Greg Holt.  I was most likely on my computer at the time, with a crazed look in my eyes, trying to figure out how to upload a photo of a fish onto a blog, which is almost as hard as catching a fish.

The Holt boys have been kind and gracious enough to allow me to display their talents on my site.  Sometimes Greg sends me amazing flies that he has tied.  You will see some of his flies and more of his articles soon.

So please stay tuned.  We here at Linespeedjedi.com run a taught ship and give credit where credit is due.  Ten-Four?  Casting Sheriff Over and Out!

  1. Too funny, Tim!
    I will take credit for hooking both of the fish in the accompanying photos, but in the best tradition of the “Sheriff I will confess that the fly displayed in the second photo was tied by Steve. It was an original creation assembled the evening prior, and to honor the moment of capture it was named “Come to Papa”. He pirated the finest fibers from one of my prized plumes but it was worth it. Whenever we fish together it is a team effort, and both these fish were landed on his ties. I guess that means he’s part of my essential gear…

    PS: The “dolphin-nose” loop above is unintentional. I meant to form a steelhead’s profile but that’s as close as I came.

    1. Thanks for the full disclosure Greg. Fishing with your son is the coolest part of the whole deal. I need to do a piece on fishing with our kids or our dads or both. You guys are a fine combination. That Dolphin nose loop is one of my all time favorite pics. I need to figure out how to photo shop my face in place of yours. Excellent work on the part of the caster and the photographer.
