Well I spent the day chasing Chinook Salmon. I am consistently amazed at the quality of fishing that is available here in God's country (northern Mi.). The salmon run in the fall and everything seems a little behind this year, global warming or no rain. Anyway the rain came wed. and I was on the stream today. The mourning started with visible fish all around. Hooking these fish in a stream on a fly rod is one thing, landing them is quite another. I went 7 for 15 which is real good ! The average fish takes about 20 minutes to land and your usually about a hundred yards downstream from where you hook them when you land them. All fish were landed with 3X (6 lb.) leaders. They say their running small this year, I'll let you guys judge!
