    Fished Allyn area on Friday. Saw tons of activity but no hook-ups. Saw a guy with a 6 wt fight at least a 15 lb fish for about 2 minutes before it broke off. Went back on Sunday. Hooked my first salmon ever on fly rod... fought it for about 30 seconds and lost it. It was a kick to watch it jump and roll on the surface. All I needed was a taste, though... and I'll be back after them next weekend. The fly I used was fairly small... brown floss body, sparse crystal and flashabou tail with bead chain eyes.

    later...

    Thanks for the report and congrats on your first hookup. Were you fishing from a boat or from shore?
