I slipped into Portland, Oregon last night and am presently staying with my old friend Mike LaSota (Michigan Mike). Mike’s last time on the blog was when we fished in Gabon in 2016. What brought me to Portland was to give my presentation, “Streamer Tricks for More and Larger Trout” for the Flyfisher’s of Oregon Club. But I never come to Oregon without fishing a few days with Mike after I work.
My talk went fantastic this evening and first thing tomorrow Mike and I are dragging his drift boat to the coast. It’s our intention to catch some chinook salmon on the fly around the Pacific City area. I’ve not ever fished there before nor have I caught a “true” native chinook salmon fresh from the ocean before. Should be a blast!!
