This is why you dont procrastinate and get your @#$ out of bed at 3 am in the morning and go salmon fishing. You go out in pursuit of the one, the one that makes you shake when your reeling it in, the one that makes every muscle in your body tighten up while your fighting it, the one that makes you empty out your lungs when it hits the net. Ya you know the one I'm talking about.

With the first good storm of the fall a few salmon moved in to the coastal rivers. The rivers were extremely busy and not a lot guides know what river educate is. You just let em race, cut you off, row up next to your boat and make complete donkey's of them selves and go on. After they blow through the hole good guides row back up let the hole cool down and go through it again. I smash on fish behind everyone dont let em ruin your trip.
