First salmon on a fly rod. An injured pink but I'll take it. She still had a good fight in her and she took off as soon as I released her. Should I be ashamed since it was injured? Or proud because the seal couldn't even land this one? First one on the beach this morning at 6am. Fish on at 6:02. The crowds quickly began showing up but it was dead after that except a few flounder and sculpin. Off the water at 9am. Fished MA9 last night and saw some rollers but no luck. Glad the persistence paid off this morning.
