I finally got out to do some fishing after taking a couple weeks off. With early morning overcast skies I headed off to a favorite beach not far from home. I arrived to find a couple other guys on the beach. For a little more than an hour the fishing was slow to start, maybe because it was at the top of the tide. Just as the tide turned and my thoughts drifting a solid fish stopped my fly mid-strip. After a fun battle a hatchery coho came sliding up the beach. It's good to have some fish around!
