Nice Salmon!  How deep is that creek/river?

Thanks. That varies a lot, from 1 to maby 4 meters. And on top of that there's a lot of weed on the bottom, so finding the right fishing depth can be a little tricky.

Well done. Lovely deep fish. What pattern did you use?   Can I also ask what model that guideline rod is?

Thanks the flie was a yellow zoner.
It wasn't a guideline rod, but a loop adventure 12,4 8-9.
Have six adventure rods, feels Taylor made to my casting action.

Like the fly. I see you use rubber legs. I haven't tied many with the legs yet but have one in my tube fly box. The zonker wings really look good in the flow.
