Fly fishing


There’s no style of fishing quite as exciting as surface fishing. Trolling bucktail flies 15-20 feet behind the boat on a eight weight rod is a exciting way to target Coho Salmon. Coho can also be caught on the cast fly when the conditions are right. Lessons in fly-fishing techniques and casting can be incorporated into the day.

The bucktail fly trolls along just below the surface only a few pulls of line behind the boat. Suddenly, from the depths, a Coho salmon lunges at the fly. The Coho smacks the fly, its upper jaw breaking the surface but it doesn’t hook up… An instant later, a second larger Coho comes in from the side, engulfs the fly, and cartwheels along the surface away from the boat as the reel comes alive in your hand…
