Its almost that time again!...well its still like...four months off but its closer today than it was yesterday! and I am gearing up and starting to get some flies for the various kinds of salmon that I hope to catch this time around. Last season I had no idea what I was doing...this season I know enough to know that I still need tips and pointers from people more experinced than myself.
I know what flies work really well with Pink Salmon, and I know what flies work really well with Chum salmon. Infact when I use these certian flies I usually get a bite within a few casts.
However I know next to nothing about King and Silver Salmon, I'm not sure what kind of flies they like to munch on. I am thinking trying a fat freddie for kings and maybe a dolly lama for silvers but other than that I have no ideas what so ever. Anybody have a fly that they use as their back up?
Secondly what do Sockeye salmon munch into? I have been asking people this question for the better part of a year and they almost always tell me that they don't eat, and they cant be aggrovated into striking, You have to. "Snag" or "Floss" or "Line" them and pull them in. I don't like to snag fish, is there a way to catch sockeye, like a special fly that they tend to bite into more times than normal?
Anyways, lets see how many tips I get! I'll see you around Fishapolooza is only like...six months away? woohoo!
