Author Topic: coho

lost another coho at the wharf yesterday !! dang barbless hooks..another 5-6 weeks and it should be killer down there..cant wait to start slaying them off the beach on the fly...what are your fav coho flies ? I have only ever buzz bombed for coho..and looking forward to hittin the fly tying bench soon...any help would be greatly appreciated....tightlines

excellent. I've never used buzzbombs for coho. usually use koho spoons in blue size 35 or 45. they have this one out that has a bizzarre reflection on it.... illusion I believe it's called...... works great.. also pink jigs were insanely effective on the kitimat when i lived there.

i'm itching to try catching them on the fly from the beach as well. I just took a small course regarding fly fishing from the beach. other than what was suggested (fly wise) in the class I would have no idea what works... what I was shown was very small. I was going to go buy some this week, I will post up some pics.

and since your pretty handy with your camera you could post a few pics of ones you like or want to try?

Bucktails, Muddlers in a bunch of colors with flash work good.
You can mix colors up, have one color only etc. your choice if your tying.
And theres a bunch of flash flies.
Go down to pacific angler if your there and grab some coho buggers, they work as well
Ive been using my own variation i tied up and it has me a couple so far.

I love this fishery.Before kids I used to take a week after Labor Day just for beach coho.You can chase a school for hours with nothing,then you hook up on your next three casts.Sometimes the shadow of your line, 10' above the water, spooks them.Other times you can do no wrong.Nothing like hooking a fish in 4' of water with no place to go but out.I could go on...
I'll post some flies if I get some time.Mostly small (8/10))in various colour combos tied in polar bear.
Chartreuse is a go to.
BC outdoors has two articles on this in thier last issue

keep the bucktails skimpy from what I have heard.

I bumped an old thread you might be interested in labelled tsawassen

thanks for bumping that was a good read !
