Saltwater Fly-Fishing / Beach fishing for Coho!
In the last few days I've been trying out my new boat on the beaches in our area. Yesterday I witnessed 2 pods of Killer Whales swim by while I was rowing around looking for Salmon... Although the picture of the Orca isn't the greatest, you could imagine what it feels like to be in a little boat while these monsters are near by! I watched as these whales came completely out of the water at times in amazement, can't see that on the river! The beach is always a challenge to get guests to try out. Salmon fishing & still water is hard to comprehend for those from other places I feel as most have never had the opportunity like we do here in our waters. It's one fishery that once you experience it you're usually hooked! Today I fished with a friend who invited me to Nile Creek near Qualicam Beach on Vancouver Island. We both hooked a few Coho while Stripping in Bait patterns, it was a beauty day with a few nice fish in between. The ticket was to place your fly on or around the jumping / finning fish & start stripping your fly fast! I managed to land one of the fish I hooked, shook the other off and missed a few more on the Grab... It's a very exciting way to fish, casting at wild feeding salmon up to 20 lbs. When I was rowing back to the car I heard my friend hook up on a great fish, In the distance I could see this fish leaping while my friend was howling with excitment, wish I could have got the pic of it leaping out of the air which I attemped with the previous fish:) This fishery is just starting to get good this season in the Campbell river area, looking forward to more of it this next month...
