A quick report on Chico Creek. Fished it on the ebb to high. Was met at the trail by a group of gents from Kent. Nice morning, no rain, but windy. Not many Chums showing before low slack. After the turn, they, and the seals showed up in good numbers. Not many Salmon hookups though. Starry Flounders were the most caught fish. I was one of the lucky ones to tie into a Chum. Nice male with a LOT of run in him. Some screaming runs as I tried to back him out the way and towards the beach, away from the other fishermen. Skunk is off the 13' Forecast Spey I built, and the Okuma Sierra puchased for it. This my first salmon to hand with a rod I built and a fly and tapered leader I tied.:thumb: I'm really impressed with the way it punched line out and across the wind and the drag on the Okuma. Back out again if the weather lets up for me.
