Ill bet a skykomish sunrise would work too.
Thanks; Yes, I fish it on a floating line with a 7-1/2 ft tapered leader.
God I love fishing full floaters and a normal leader. Takes on/near the surface are awesome
Do you use that reel?
Not often. It was my Grandfathers and it has a place on my fireplace mantel. It comes out from time to time to go fishing though.
Those are the best kind... cherish it.
I'm on the river now sharing a pool with this guy.
THAT guy knows how to fish.
That's cool. I haven't seen a bear in a while. My neighbor said he saw a small one walk through our yard a few weeks ago though.
All the carcasses were eating in half the othrr day and there were fresh peints eveeywhere
Ran into two cubs while I was out there couple weeks ago. They are definitely out there.
I wonder what's down that trail with all the chewed humpies leading up to it.
Camera pics are slightly better than my phone.
Pretty cool Noodles. I really like the trail of humpies headed to the den
I dare somebody to climb up that trail
in a shark suit...
I hit the river at first light this morning. Started off down in the tide water. Walked the length of a big hole looking for any signs off coho. Nada. After only a few casts I decided to head back up into the N. Fork and look for some cutthroat. After parking and walking a ways I finally started fishing, swinging a Thor on a floating line. After several short strikes and no hooking up I tied on the trusty reverse spider. That was the ticket. Ended up landing probably a dozen with many more strikes and follows. No huge ones but they were all 12-15" and pulled really hard for they're size. The day started off raining but the sun was starting to come out when I was finishing up around noon.
HR - I almost went out this morning. Glad to know someone was out there gettin' it done. Nice pictures. Great looking Searun.
I got out yesterday morning as well, in a new-to-me area...sun up to noon. Beautiful day on the river, but only got a few plucks from a zombie pink swimming around the hole. Eight bald eagles and no fish...still not a bad day.
