Great day. Learned to spey cast. Landed a few, lost a few, 2 of which were really big. My first experience "combat" fishing. The number of fishermen was insane, despite the cold weather. Thank goodness I had a guide or I never would have known how to do this. These close quarters are definetly not my style. I would definetly need to find some less crowded areas if I am to return. But these fish are definetly fun to catch!

Caught them mainly on nymphs, hares ear were particularly productive.

 

Cheers!

Good for you. If you want to see crowded try the PA side of Lake Erie when there's a run. But, it's all worth it when you hook up.

I think I'm going to give it a try at the DSR (Douglastown Salmon Run) which is supposec to be limited access. I don't mind company on a pool, but when you're stoked to have a fish on only to realise you're actually tangled in you neighbours line who has the fish, it's a bit much. I now realise the crowded Atlantic Salmon pools in Quebec really aren't that bad.
