Here's a question for the learned members on this site: the numbers of pinks available on the salt beaches are certainly not what they were a week ago, probably just a small fraction. However, those that are left are definitely thinking more about sex than food, kind of like most of you young bucks. Anyway, I noticed that unlike previously where the pinks hit reasonably hard and just about set the hook themselves when you raised the rod, now they appear to be just picking the fly up, and then dropping it, likely just out of feeding habit. All you feel is a slight bump, you raise the rod to set and nothing is there. Anyone have experience/advice with milling/staging fish, whether pinks or other salmon, and how to better feel the light take, and how to set on them?
