I just got back from BC. Fished the Fraser on Aug 25th and it was hand over fist Sockeye. I pulled in about 15 in 5 hours and actually got 3 in a row at one point, all on the fly rod. I must say it was a fun afternoon.

It was an amazing time. I think it ruined me for fishing down here in NS, lol. I was just using the classic whool egg pattern, peach in color. The trick was getting it deep enough. I had 15' of #5 sink tip plus 2 slpit shot! It was like chucking a beaver on the end of your line lol.
