  9. Saltwater Fishing
    I've been dabbling beach fishing for coho the past few days, been having a great time but no real success yet. I've only been out a handful of times and the fishing has been slow for everyone that was out. I haven't seen one landed yet, but I have seen a couple hooked. I haven't seen any...

    Hey everyone, My trip up north island to hit the salmon on the beaches is fast approaching, and I was wondering if anyone here had any secret patterns for pinks and cohos on the beaches that they use or have heard good things about. I already have the basics (coho killer, a few generic...

    I noticed that there is a coho fly swap going on. Does anyone fish polly wogs or "wogs" on the south coast or Van Isle? I've seen fishing shows in Alaska where these flies were used - looked like tonnes of fun!
