Pink Salmon Surf Candy

2013 was a big run year for Pink Salmon on the Skagit River in Washington. Everyone, seemingly, who fishes for Pink Salmon touts the wonders of pink flies, baits and lures -- so this Surf Candy style of fly stays true the Pink color theme.

For the Pink Salmon fly fisher, this fly may be fished on sink tip lines using cast and strip in slow flowing waters or using cast, swing, and hang-down fly delivery in riffles. Pink salmon are often found in relatively shallow water as they migrate along saltwater bay and estuary shorelines, and as they migrate upriver.

This fly sinks well, considering it is not weighted, but should still be fished on a sink tip or sinking shooting-head fly line.
