Where were you fishing? Ocean? River?

in salt water but very close to the rivers

them's some awesome catches, as usual. you're having a great season up there, steelhead. pretty awesome to be able to do that right there on your doorstep.
steelheadmike72 glad I moved back up here after being gone for 30 years..should have came back 20 years ago..
couple more weeks and it will be my 1st year back fishing since i wass a kid..I'm pretty impressed with the fishing ive done in a year..epecially with the fly fishing.I've definatly put the hours in and worked hard for it..and of course had FUN.

just goes to show the kid can come back ! keep having fun and entertaining all of us as well. your posts are always great, Mike.

quick question. you think i would be alright with a regular ol' 6wt for pinks? i really wanna try but i also dont want to lose my rod as i cant afford another at this time.

is this possible? i have a larger reel and lots of backing.

I would definatly use a 6wt..if its just pink in the system your where I fish I used my 4/5wt switch on pinks until I knew there were coho there I use my 7wt switch..2weeks back i hooked into a big chum on my 7wt..landed it just cast I break my tip on a 5lb pink.its a tough choice risk it and maybe break it..or risk it and have it be just fine.
If it were me..I'd fish it..just take it easy if it seems big n strong..maybe use a lighter tippit that you can break off easier.
I dont know that id wanna catch a 12 chrome coho on it..but it would sure be fun.
goodluck deciding..let me know how it works for you.

right on! thanks buddy. ya i figured if i play the fish right and treat it like it is (a pinky on a 6wt) i should be able to pull it off.

will post results when i get a chance to get out
