Merrimack River 5/12

I fished the Merrimack in beautiful downtown Lawrence Sunday morning (ah the ambiance). I took my Spey to practice for the Skeena this fall. I was fishing for American Shad, when low and behold a pull, a jump, followed by a bunch more, one Atlantic Salmon brought to hand, and released. I can't think of a better way to christen a fly rod.I like this spey thing.
I did have two shad on, but they pulled off. There were a bunch of boats below the island striper fishing with live alewife.
