skate a purple muddler.. don't ever cast over the fish
Haha that 160th work schedule is da bomb huh. I went over there for a part the other day. Damn place is a palace compared to where I work!
Begs the question; what are first and second? My guess, chartreuse and, hmmm, white?
Ha ha well its part of the pleasure of being on night shift i dont come in to work till 1700. I plan on doing some fishing this weekend if you want to hit up someplace together.
I might be able to swing Sunday... Maybe. But sat I'm babysitting and extra duty guy.
exciting i love babysitting... im down just let me know ill pm you with my cell number.
1700....Fort Lewis...military I presume!!!! Good luck fishing!
you are correct. thanks and good luck to you as well.
I am off in Graham, In the US Coast Guard 21.5 years, so military has been my life for awhile. Born Seattle so finally back home. Not sure where you are living, but me and my brother always looking for others to go fishing. PM me and will try to get together and have some fun!
You're right on one of those
Get upstream of the schooling pinks in the river and make downstream angled casts to them that allow plenty of time for the fly to reach the bottom. When your fly drifts just in front of their snouts on the bottom of the pool, begin a moderate strip-pause-strip-pause retrieve back upstream. The pinks always eat the fly on the the pause as the fly drops back toward the bottom. I use a clear intermediate fly line, a 9 foot leader, and a forward weighted fly like a Shock&Awe with stinger hook in the rivers (pink over electric purple/white). Using this method on the Skykomish River I used to hook bright pink salmon nearly every cast the first week of September (before they got all humped up and aggressive).
My response is simple but a few days out dated. Wait for the rivers to drop shortly. A common thread is to go deep. Number one advice. Fly of your choice. I rarely use anything else than a clouser throughout the world. Use sparse, pink over white, small hook. Get down to the fish. I use a 7wt., floating line, 5 ft. of t11, weighted coluser. I ignore the crowds but rather wade. You will find pods of fish from 5 to upwards in the seams away from the crowds. Good polorized glasses are essential. Fish these pods. Two is the maximum you will hook. You will get company as soon as others see fish. Move on. Your cast will be no more than 25 to 30 feet. Cast up stream of the fish and mend as a normal Nympth techinuqe. The action doing so will attract the fish. If nothing happens wade on. My experience is to hook 30 to 40 in a ten hour day. Petri Heil. (Good Fishing)
Hmmm...Orange? Chartreuse and orange?
Just because I'm in a good mood today
