    Default Salmon galore

    I was fishing the Miramichi last week and in the first hour close to 30 fish jumped. We moved to a new spot and I had one roll 5 feet in front of me but wouldn't take. Soon I will have my first fish, soon.

    Yep, just keep your fly on the water; it's just a matter of time. Good luck!

    That's the plan. I lucked out and ran into a professional casting instructor and got some free instruction which improved my casting 100%. It was an awesome day.

    I'm so glad to hear you are in the fish, it won't be long if there are a bunch in your river. I will be going back after them tomorrow and will be camping for a few days. The river I'm learning now is a long boat trip away and I have to stay once there.

    Good fishing and post when you get one,

    As the others have stated, keep your fly in the water, your time will come and hopefully sooner than later. Good luck!

    Was it Rick Whorwood you ran into? I took a speycasting course from him last week at Ledges Inn.

    I can't remember his name but it may have been. There were 2 spey guys there getting their flies way way out there. It was at pool 66. The Americans hadn't shown up yet so we had the full pool.
