Thread: Mikes new personal best

    Default Mikes new personal best



    I asked mike and ron to join me on the lower Kenai today, it was a good day.
    28'' 8-9 lb rainbow on a flesh fly under an indicator... Mike said its his personal best.. congrats Mike.
    we did alright, 4 hour float starting at 10 am... we did not count our fish, but only two were under 18-22'' and fat.. all on flesh. Ron did well also.. and add one more broken rod to their score. 20 minutes into the float a double digit bow took mike into his backing, then wrapped aa rock.. probably would have been a once in a life fish- Good times

    I didn't realize that Rainbow even got that big!
    That's bigger than the last steelhead that I took home!
    WOW!
    What's "flesh"? Cut bait? Slice off a chunk of your arm? A term for some special fly thing?

    Its a fly thats meant to look like a piece of juicy flesh floating by Dave. Some of the ones I've seen are a strip of rabbit fir with some other colored adornment like blood red added around the top. I bet they hammer em. I hope to find out on the Metolius in a few weeks.

    Those big rainbows are incredible. I wonder if they'd take swung flies...
