Here are a few pics from the past couple weeks.

I’ve been catching a few chums on flies recently, utilizing a 9wt spey rod to bully them in from the current. Every year in November, I really like getting out on the river and catching a few Chums. Chum salmon fight so hard, and are so strong, that it just seems like a shame not to get out there, catch a few, and really test your gear out. Last year, I used my 8wt St. Croix Imperial on them, and it felt a little light to me, especially when the fish get in the current. The 9wt Spey rod I have been using this year really lets me put the heat on them and pull them out of the current.
