    Man I hope so, but I'll believe it when I live it.

    OK guy's, I've been fishing most of my life but this is my first time attempting to land some Salmon in the salt water by Fly.

    Please help a poor bastage out and tell me exactly what to do in order to catch a couple!

    I have several fly rods, Some from England I used on their lakes and Lochs, but never for this.

    I am having a hard time thinking I can land a 9 or 10 lb salmon on a floating leader that's only 2 lb test for the first 12 to 14 inches, and I'm used to using size 18 and 20 hooks on my flies, sometimes size 22 without a friggin eyelet to tie to...


    So tell me what type rod to grab, what type line, what type leader, what type fly and where the heck to go :) :)

    I'm a 'weirgin' that needs a kick in the arse to get his fly career going! I'm also living in Gorst right near a lot of nothing....


    Thanks!

    Gary

    Quick hint. Hit Lion's Park in East Bremerton, outgoing tide, 2hrs past the top of the flood and 2 hrs each side of the bottom of the ebb. Gear: 4-6 wt rod, floating line, 9' tapered leader, size 14 to size 8 wet flies (shrimp and streamers or buggers) fish the seams. Start your casts BEFORE you step in the water. Depth: ankle deep to neck deep. Watch for surface sippers. PM me and maybe we can get together.

    Awesome!

    I have NO CLUE what most of what you said means, like "shrimp and streamers or buggers and fish in the Seams..." AND finally I think a surface sipper is a snorkling salmon wandering across the top just eating random flying stuff?

    PM coming.
