Mossy and slow........

Last week a buddy of mine got over 100 in 2 days. Then the rain came, then the moss.

I fished it a couple days at OC and only managed a hand full and this.


Springer on an ultra light is interesting to say the least. Add a fur bag in the mix and things get really interesting. Add the fact we only had a small net with us and it went to a whole other level.

Sweet, the same thing happened to us over memorial wekend. Fishing above the island at Kalama my buddies 6' trout rod started bucking wildly. 1/2 mile downstream and 15 minutes later a 15# pound hatchery chinook hit the deck. I only had my trout net with me as well. Luckily we had the barbs pinched on the Wee Dick nites we were fishing. The salmon fisherman mixed in with te shad guys were not happy to put it midly. Jealousy is an ugly thing

I love the Chum.
