Aug 12th / 09 Guiding Update

What an amazing month for Salmon fishing in Tidal waters so far, the numbers of fish cruising our beaches seems exceptional. There's more & more large Coho showing everyday with many in the high teens cartwheeling around! We managed to land one nice coho this morning as seen in the picture, this nice silver put up a good fight after grabbing my clients quickly stripped fly! I'm a firm believer in a fast presentation when fishing bait patterns for Coho. I have often missed out on good fish while stripping my fly slow, it seems like they analyse it more, boil on it, even bump it without really grabbing the fly when all of a sudden your flies at your rod tip & the fish is gone! The mystery of what you might hook when fishing Saltwater keeps this fishery very exciting with all the salmon & sea-trout about. Who knows, maybe a Steelhead will surprise us one day when fishing the chuck:)
