It was the first time fishing a river and the first run of the day for my new buddy Leo. After a brief demo it was only a few casts before the lion roared, the rod was bent and the fish was ON. The battle was epic as only a Chinook can be and as Leo's hand grabbed the wrist of the tail of his prize, it was trembling. "This is the biggest fish I have ever caught, my first Salmon on the fly and my first fly caught fish in a river." He said as the fish swam back into the depths........ Well what can I say..."There is no Nookie like Chinookie"!!!

Of course there were some other fish on this trip was well, and once all of the banana's were out of the boat we had some good fun with the Sea-Run Bull's

 

Well Done Boys!! and Congratulations Leo on a fish not soon to be forgotten.

I had posted this post back at the beginning of September of a show we filmed with Jimmy Houston and have since received some pictures from the trip as well as the approximate date of Airing of the show. We will see the show air on the Versus Network sometime in mid July and when I get the exact date I will let everyone know..... Cheers

 

   

 

August 23rd saw us on the water with fishing legend Jimmy Houston filming for an upcoming episode. We managed to get a fly rod into his hands, and he made it work, showing us how it was done on his second cast by hooking a large Chinook which threw him on a jump. We hooked a number of Sockeye salmon and a couple of beautiful Bull Trout at various parts of the river before heading to the "Ace In the Hole" at he last part of the day. Jimmy and his daughter Sherri lit it up with Sockeye after Sockeye and didn't stop until long after the camera was out of film and the batteries were dead. It was awesome to see someone who has been fishing for so long and done just about everything still lovin' it so much...... Well Done Jimmy.

Pictures will be coming soon and I will post the air time of the show when we find it out.
