    Default Fall... Flesh!

    The flesh season has begun in SC AK. The leaves are changing, the cats are stalking the shrews, the bears are coming out of the upper river... And the Leopards are on the hunt... Flesh!

    I love throwing flesh for the bows while in AK. Some of our patterns go as long as 6 inches with half a dozen different colors of fur and feathers.

    Looks like a blast. Haven't thrown flesh flies for a long time.

    That's kind of the "gold standard" for this river, mike. It's about 4" long, but only 3 colors. My Dali Lamas are a solid 6 inches of rabbit fur, and they still get slashed by the 'bows while we are hunting Silvers! The flesh grab is akin to egg bites. Gobble, gobble, gobble! Hahahahaha!

    After you get done with school you and I need to spend a summer in AK, Al. Do the gear fishin for Kangs, and hit trophy rainbows, and monster Silvers on the fly!

    I dont think it matters any after seeing the Kenai bows tear apart an entire sockeye carcass. It is obv size is not an issue... Those rainbows your catching really do have striking colors!

    On the rare occasion we find a dead trout, all of them had choked on something. Couple with mice, one with a baby harlequin and the rest on salmon entrails. Most on the stomach with esophagus attached! They are gnarly feeders!

    I will give up the sheer size of big river 'bows, for the sheer beauty of these fish! We get the rare 30" fish, and our average is actually up at 20"! With is a huge trout, no matter how you slice the pie! Totally unique Rainbow trout fishery!
