Went out after some silver this morning, caught 2 little 1 pounders that were rapidly released, an hour later got into a nice fish maybe eight pounds but as luck will have it right at the beach the hook came loose and I got to watch it swim away man what a pisser. I decided I would try again this evening so it was off to home tied up a couple of more flies and at about 5:30 got back to the beach the tide wasn't moving all that much and there was alot of salad floating around which was a pain but the water was still fishable about a half hour into it I got into a really nice coho big hooknose 12 pounds or better that really had me hoping my knots would hold, they did, outstanding, after a little bashing and bleeding I started fishing again 3rd cast got into another fish this one much smaller than the first but still an ok fish, both were caught using a pink clouser. I left my house at 5pm and was home by 7pm great night guess whats for dinner tomorrow.

cheap 8 weight rod redfly, cheap reel scientific anglers graphite, cheap 14 dollar fullsink line that I bought from one of the shops on this site which I might add is a great deal and really has held up well to the harshness of the salt and casts pretty darn good.

Just got in from MA9 beach; very windy! Tough to cast. Only two small coho (12-14 inches) and no real fish hooked. Didn't see any gear guys get any either. Maybe on the later tide. Jeff
