the silvers are coming..........

Here we go again with another record run of silvers predicted for the Skagit. Last year I tried a few times to catch these things with the bug rod without success and much frustration.

Any fly recipes and/or fishing techniques for silvers that you could pass on would be appreciated greatly.

Speedy retreives

Flys for Coho tend to be flashy and long, (like the Comet) but the most important part of the equation is a fast retrieve. There are no absoloutes in fishing but a fast fly for coho is close to being absoloutly the one.

Try a fly that used to be called the Karluk Flash Fly and that is now simply known as the Flash Fly. It is tied this way:

Hook: #2,4,6 stainless steel saltwater
Tail: silver flashabou
Body: silver mylar braid (I prefer to use silver Metallique Estaz)
Hackle: red, blue, purple, hot pink, fushia, mixed blue and hot
pink, or mixed blue and purple.
Wing: silver flashabou (a large bunch) tied to be half way down
the tail in length

No bead chain or led eyes, no lead on the shank under the body. Red is my favorite with fushia (you'll have to dye your own) and blue for a change of pace.

Fish it with short or medium strips on the swing and the silvers will hit with a rush. It is not hard to get 10+ fish mornings or evenings with this fly.
