What a difference a day makes! 8/31/2012

Based on our poor showing yesterday we got some redemption as dad and I were able to wrangle out limits of bright Coho. Dad is getting a little more comfortable with the fly rod and the presence of more fish definitely helped us out versus the weaker showing yesterday. I counted 32 anglers on the tide flats but it wasn’t until the hour before the low tide that all the action happened with schools of 4-6 fish consistently pushed up river. I used my pink hoochie hooker and it worked like a charm. We got 6 females and 3 males, snagged 5 fish but the remainder were fair hooked and averaged 4-6 lbs.

Rods: Sage RPL 9′ 8 wt. 4-piece and Redington Pursuit 9′ 8 wt.

Lines: Airflo multi tip and Scientific Anglers floating line

Flies: Pink hoochie hooker

    Hi Paul,
    Your long weekend sounds like a fun time. You talk about a river. Which river are you fishing near Port Townsend? Thanks
