Spring Chinook fishing just keeps gettin' better!

Check out my "gear we use" page for some notes on spring chinook equipment that I use for succesful days on the water.

Yesterday I spent a great day on the lower Umpqua with new friend, Tim Walters (seated on left) and old friend, Frank Moore.  Tim works for ODFW and is fairly new to our part of the State.  He wanted to learn a little about our Spring Chinook fishery so Frank made arrangements with me to take them out for a day. 
We ended the day with five on and one landed.  Frank is modeling his "advanced technique" of getting another grab by putting a sandwhich and a drink in his hands.

Fellow salmon fly fisherman, Rob Russell joined us for a bit while we were anchored in the "hog line".
