Was out chasing fish the other day on the lower end of the river and could not find any searuns or steel ghosts, high water must have washed them out. Came to a slow drift and noticed fish rolling, had to be pinks. So being bored and running out of time, I put a bright pink #8 on and fished through. On a sloppy cast that made it out to the main current, had a slow tug and then a short run. My first thought was, humpy. Proceeded to reel him up and give him his freedom when, he takes off upriver and depletes my fly line and then the backing. Could this be a silver or a ghost? After a couple of good runs and nice head shakes on the 6 weight, I pulled him to hand and to my surprise, "humpy". Nice fish very good color no net marks and what fight from a pink salmon! I guess I should not always under estimate them old pinks.
