I am off to the Deschutes this morning for our first trout fly fishing season. I really look forward to this season and it’s been a while since we have put in with great of forecast, it’s going to be great!
Well……….. I have to come clean about Spring Salmon season, it was a so so year, we would have a big day then the next day would be slow. The water was up and down and warm then cold, you get the picture. The biggest and greatest new item of the year was the Sonic Flasher. It is a flasher with a buzz blade in the center. It is a fish catcher to say the least. I have to admit I am partial to this flasher because my son-in-law Seth and his brother Zach came up with the idea and it is amazing.
My sources up in the Portland area tell me that the fish finally have shown up in good numbers, so go by a Sonic Flasher at fisherman’s and go catch a springer!
Sonic also sells regular flashers, reverse spin flashers, you name it they do it and they work! Website www.byoflashers.com
