trolling flies is the task at hand. Sold out
of many selections this season that must be
replaced. For me? ...attractor-fly
combinations work best when the adult Salmon are
hard keyed on a 54 to 58 degree thermocline.
Colder water in the 50s and below a dedicated meat
program is hard to beat. Everything depends on
what the conditions are that fish have found a

good week with progress on all fronts. Now is
the time inventory must be built for the soon ...to be
