Jay Nicholas’ Salmon Fisher’s Journal: Late October 2010  Images

It’s October, and we have us some Chinook salmon flies.  Yes we do.


Pasture the Jet sled.  Unleash the Pram.


No fly rod?  No problem.  All one  needs is a fly reel and a little cork to bite-down on.


What discovery will this new day reveal?


Hot.  Thirsty.  No fish.  No grabs.  Focus.


A fancy fly reel left in the grass was still there next morning.


Sea Run Cutthroat – the fish we couldn’t catch when we were trying.


Often, only our shadow is there to share our thoughts.


We do have our favorite flies to fish.


Chum salmon: beautiful ssurprise.


One last cast, maybe.

  1. oh, that’s nice stuff! suprising number of folks fighting kings with their teeth this year. it’s catching on, i guess.

    1. Next challenge – no rod and no reel – hand line fly fishing for kings. Bet we know exactly where to stand and make the cast. What tippet shall we use? JN

    1. Mitch: Yeah man. It needs to be a several day trip to enjoy our time together and to start to see the beauty and character of the great Skagit. Let’s plan, JN
