After going out 3 times, I finally got into 5 SRC's this morning between 8-10am just south of Lincoln Park. Smallest was unquestionably tiny, and the biggest was only 12 or so inches. Wind was up early blowing right in my face the whole morning, and I still haven't bought a intermediate sinking line, so I was running a floating line with a slip on sinking tip. I am ordering a line today as those tips are impossible to turn over in all but the calmest conditions at distance. Most exciting part of the day was getting a good scare from a really big Salmon following my fly to within about 10 feet of me. I had been looking into the water watching small cuts follow my fly up to the beach, when all of the sudden this football thick fish is coming at me. I actually jumped a bit in the water having never tried to tackle anything that big in my 15 years of land locked fly fishing. I really could use some pointers on stripping style. I have no idea what sort of length, speed, or frequency I should be using. Just want to say a BIG THANKS to EVERYONE, especially Steve Knapp, for all the help getting me set-up for a great day and my first of hopefully many SRC's.
