Salmon fishing & fly tying on the Miramichi...

Saturday, 13 April 2013

Blackville or Bust, tomorrow AM!! Spring fishing, here we come!

Just packing, and packing and packing and packing... lugging gear sucks! It'll all be worth it on Monday AM when we're swinging flies in the Miramichi river!

The water is on the rise and it'll likely be dirty and full of grass and debris... lots of taking stuff off your hook between swings but at least we'll be fishing =)

This is one pile of gear of at least six.....but this is the most important one!

A few last minute flies, I'm even going to try a simple tube smelt this time around. If I can have some success on this type of fly I plan to tie more for our next trip ... the hook on a tube fly is much smaller than the traditional spring streamer so it will be a lot more fish friendly. I'll be sure to report how it works out.

A marabou and a bunny strip... these are big flies, meant for trolling:

Just a quick post for now, stay tuned over the next few days as I'll be posting updates of our luck, good bad or otherwise =)

Tight lines and be safe!
