Sorry to see that you lost that Salmon! Bummer. But, there are more where he/she came from!
Oh...my I emptied out my inbox. So, you can PM me again. ;-)
If you'd like to go chasin some blue backs (sea run cutts), let me know. I'm gonna head out early on Saturday; and it a small trib (creek) of the Siletz. I'll be using ultralight spinning gear for 'em: spinners, flies, and maybe some bait like worms.
