Salmon fishing & fly tying on the Miramichi...

The evening shift.....

... strikes out, but we had a great couple hours on the water and quite a few laughs. We had a few more pulls but no solid hook ups - just a beautiful night doing what we love in good company - is there more to life than this? I can't imagine if there is....
We saw lots of fish showing, off and on all day, a couple lads from Moncton were doing really well trolling while Bill and I were spey casting. In less than an hour they hooked 8 and landed half in the 'honey hole' then the fish shut off and that was about the end of the action for the day.... We were the only boat on the river this evening, it was almost as if everyone else knew the fishing was starting to slow down. Tomorrow morning it could be back on and we aim to find out :)
Here's a few pics from the evening shift:
