    Fly15,

    I haven't fly-fished for pinks but carrying over gear fishing I would try the following:

    Get a nice pink fly, salmon flesh design or something similiar. I am sure you could let it lay still or strip it in slowly. Gear fishing you can use a pink corky and yarn and leave it somewhat still or get a pink spinner or spoon. Is that why they call them pinks or what? I'm sure other colors will work but I know they hit yarn, especially pink yarn.
