I've heard of pinks in even numbered years. Are you catching them in the salt? I've been dying to try my lead assed herring. I'm just hoping I can get it to dart around like it did on fly fish tv for strippers except that it's tied like a pacific herring. I'm headed out to point no point this week to over head off the beach with my 13 foot Talon. Hoping for Coho.

Hi Matt,

Pinks have a strong year and a weak year, the even years the runs are larger. Yes, we are catching them off the beach. Your herring fly should do quite well!

What size and color do you tie it in?

Seeya out there N I

It's tied on a 2 with a 2 inch tail. You can just see the lead under the tail. This one turned out more purple than green, but I'll be working on that. I'm thinking the tail needs to be longer and the head thinner. Don't want to tie up too many until I see this thing swim. If it does what I want it to, I will go to town.

Let me see if it swims like I want it to first. On a new pattern or design, I usually burn up 20 hooks before I get it right. If it even works. I'll know after Friday.
