Westcoast Resorts’

Westcoast Resorts’ guide ‘Haywire’ with a nice coho salmon caught on a cast fly. Casting flies for Pacific salmon. while casting flies, but I’ve also extended my overall enjoyment of fishing by packing the fly outfit with me. Here are a few things I’ve learned along the way that might help you. Fly-casting to salmon always means that your fly should imitate herring, anchovies, and sometimes needlefish. While in freshwater, it’s necessary to match the hatch of insects, and it’s much the same in saltwater – match the size and depth of the baitfish the salmon are feeding on. I now carry about a hundred flies with me: everything from small Clousers to giant polar bearhair flies, in a huge variety of colours. Presentation tactics vary greatly from place to place. At Rivers Inlet, I’ve done well casting small herring imitations using my dry line, right in or very near to kelp beds. At Tasu in Haida Gwaii, I accidentally discovered that allowing my #6 sinking line all the way out and letting it sink straight beneath the boat, then stripping the fly back up with long fast pulls, eventually took several dozen beautiful coho. The salmon seemed to get excited by a baitfish imitation that looked like it was trying to escape. Off Tofino, the ticket for numerous hookups was a five-centimetre (two-inch) Clouser worked 2.5 to 3 metres (8 to 10 feet) down. Remember that you’re fishing in very corrosive saltwater. Rinse all parts of your flies and your fly outfits with freshwater immediately after every outing. Fishing is always fun, but adding some fly-fishing to your saltwater trip might just completely blow your mind. 24
