River to River Part 2;

On Wednesday the 13th of July I took a ride on my favorite river looking for some sockeye salmon. I knew there would be some chum in and maybe even a few late kings that might take a fly so with a beautiful sunny day coming about I was on the water at 10:00 AM. I knew where I was headed because the fish take the same route every year and seem to hold in the same spots. From where I launched I stayed on the shallow side of the river and traveled slow watching carefully the deeper channel on my left...

In her e-mail accompanying...

Catch & Release Salmon Fishing;

Posted 06-22-2011 at 05:04 PM by Hardyreels

I went out very early today and used the same fly that has caught the fish so far this year. I'm very much in the 'if it ain't broke then don't fix it' club and things worked out well. Almost everything that is, I don't know how long it will take for me to learn to check all the settings on my camera before taking pictures. Way...

When you catch and harvest / kill a king salmon there are a couple rules you must comply with right away to avoid problems. First thing before you forget is dry your hands and get out your license. Fill out the harvest information on the back and date it, then remove your fly from the leader and break down the rod. Breaking down the tackle isn't the law but it serves to remove all doubt whether you are done fishing. I think I mentioned this before but you may not fish in 'any' flowing water on the...

Hello Readers,

Please rate the entries or leave a brief comment for me. The reason is simple, if I think people enjoy reading what I'm writing I will tell more stories. If there is little feedback I have little incentive to spend time writing here. I hope you can understand this request and that you will give some feedback to me.

Thank You,

Ard
