Well I went back to northern Mi. for a day trip with the Fly Rod. The first stream we checked the Platte, had a few fish but the bright sun made them uncooperative, I went one for two landing one eight pound king salmon. So we checked out my "secret stream", a small stream with a decent sized river mouth, also the weather turned cloudy and windy, what we found we a school of a hundred fresh Salmon in a pool about 75 feet long! Needless to say, fun ensued. I went 12 for about 20 on small size 12 egg flies with 4 lb. leaders. My friend Matt landed 5 for about a dozen hookups. We didn't break off, but had some hook pullouts due to leader stretch. These fish fight! The fresh Kings all went airborne, some jumping four or five times during the fight, and they change direction very quickly! My right arm was actually cramped up from holding the rod against the strength of these fish. Here's a couple of shots, My friend Matt is the drummer for a local blues rock group (the muggs) and a fine fly fisherman too.
