Salmon fishing & fly tying on the Miramichi...

Sunday, 15 April 2012

We even managed a couple of these today...

Gotta love brookies!

Bills on the board!

And in style - a nice salmon that did some acrobatics for us!

Black and green bunny strip on a 2/0 red gammy.

Wulff Den 9, kelts 0!

We landed 9, hooked 21 and had at least a dozen more good hard pulls! Ethan caught his first, second and third Atlantic salmon this morning!!! What a great day to be alive!

Hot flies for me were Pete's bunny strip and Korp's bunny strip smelt. Dad and Paul were using Paul's flash smelt, Ethan was nailing em on the venerable
golden eagle (or super eagle more like).
Brad caught his on an orange bunny strip and Bill is off the board for now but he's an afternoon guy anyways!

We had a good riverside chat with Rod aka nimrod and Anthony aka ablack.

More to come this afternoon.
