September Pink Reports

Spokane Bridge was a snagfest of epic proportions. A group of 3 kids next to me was aggressively snagging... they eventually snagged two and left.

Hispanic guy snagged a coho, took it to his car and resumed fishing.

Oi vey!
 
Today, while floating the Skykomish for coho (which we were successful at), we saw two dweeb-ish looking teenagers snag a pink off a redd, mutilate it with a sword (yes, a sword) for a bloody photo op, then left the carcass on the bank and took off.

What a sad statement about our society. That's messed up. It's almost as disturbing an image as your recent poetry submission ;)

Flyfishing is so "Metal"
I'm sorry you think posts like
that are ok.
Dave, you have been quite the unpleasant fellow the last month or so.... I am more surprised that no one has said anything worse to you. I know you don't understand that your posts were at best ridiculous or at worst offensive and I cannot make you understand that this is the case.

Just keep in mind that your actions online can generate reactions from people that may not be to your liking and if you are not careful they could actually influence someones opinion of you if they were to meet you outside of the forum. Who knows, maybe you are quite the pleasant fellow outside of the forum but when one acts foolish for a long enough period of time, either on an internet forum or in real life, one can eventually expect to be told to "Go eat a dick" in some fashion or another.

Thank you,

So I know I'm late in the season for pinks, but I'm new to fly fishing and would like to get at least one this season...just to feel a nice fish on my 8wt. I'd like to hit one of the S rivers, and was wondering what the local experts would suggest. I've looked around in this forum for advice, and I was really hoping this thread would be telling, but really it's just been hijacked by some folks. If you go back and read from the start i thinkyou'll see what I mean. Anyways, I'm not lookng for specific spots on rivers, just a sense of which rivers hold the best odds at this late date for getting pinks. I was thinking the Skajit, but I simply don't know.

Here is a picture of the fly I've been using and I've sent you a PM.
