Today on Conneaut creek, a tributary to Lake Erie in Ohio, mayflyman caught his first salmon.
A Coho that measured 33 inches tip-to-tail. It was just two feet away from me when it hit the "EGG SUCKING LEACH" fly pattern, what a rush!
I just got bit by the salmon-bug...
It was my first outing with my new Orvis 9-wt rod, risking the use of a bad pun; I'm hooked.
