Hey there. I'm new to the forum and did some searching and didn't quite find the answers I was looking for. I just wanted to get a little bit of advice.
I'm headed to Kodiak next week for work. I'll be taking my fly rod(s) along with me--I will have some downtime to go fishing. I've fished for Silvers and Kings on the fly before in other areas of Alaska but this is my first trip to Kodiak, and I haven't fished much for Sockeyes (Reds). I did buy some Sockeye flies that you apparently just nymph, sounds like its more just about getting it in front of their face and floating it in front of them.
Looks like from my research next week will be good for Sockeyes on the Buskin and Kings in American and Olds rivers. Would anyone be willing to give me a little advice on fishing those locations and tactics in general for sockeyes? As I mentioned I plan on basically just nymphing for the sockeyes? Is there a certain way to rig up that I should be aware of or someone can recommend?
Thanks a lot!
