1 in a thousand
When you fish a big tailwater for trout in the rocky mountains you guide might tell you proudly, “we got 5000 trout per mile in here” and he is probably telling the truth, but this does not cause you to believe that since you are floating 5 miles you will have a 25,000 fish day, or even a 100 fish day, or even a 25 fish day. In fact, on most good trout streams most folks are happy with a dozen or so nice trout, and should be, cause that’s a great day.
The trick with OP coho is keeping your eye on that ball. Lets try and land a few 10 to 15 pound chromers and not worry about all the fish your aren’t catching. It can be hard, sometimes there are many hundreds of of big chrome fish right in front of you, where you can see them, and it seems like they are all having a contest to see who can bite your fly the least.
Don’t worry about it, some will bite, sooner or later, and when they do it will be more than worth while.

I beleive that the mystery fisherman is one Jim Kerr in his new Simms wading jacket! Nice coho too!
That’s YOU Jim!!!!!
Two good guesses, but try again.
It’s a woman, I know that for sure.
Just look at those ‘birthing hips’
Who is it???
That’s a tough one Jim, and maybe a trick question. It is either Brad Pitt or George Cloney.
Now we are getting close.
Lookin’ good there, Jim, but let’s see some Matsutakis!!!!!
River Pimp? Connecting clients and his fishy smelling ladies at a river corner? Sometimes getting a little of his own…
SECRET IDENTITY IS jIM kERR
It must be “Jim the Fishhunter”! A Forks, WA river guide that persues coho like he does Elk, only more successfully. Ha!
Had a blast! Looking forward to next time! Going to cook up those nice bhirgt hatchery fish tonight! Could you email the picture of that really bhirgt hen? Thanks Jim for the experience. If I had the cash I would go again on one of those dates! Rivers are going to be good the next few days! Have fun!
