Chinook Salmon season closed yesterday. You can still fish the ocean and the Homer Spit, but the streams are done. I was able to get this buck on a fly, a purple and black streamer. I fished exactly five minutes. He hit on the second cast and it took at least ten minutes to subdue him. I was lucky. I had been skunk the proceeding trips to this river. In other news, I'm weening myself off pastries and trying to eat salads. I don't want to come back to Wyoming 20 pounds heavier. It seems there's pastries and doughy pizza available here in absurd quantities.
