Been a while since I last posted. I've been fishing, hunting the big salmon. I came as far as 10.3 kilograms this time, with two monsters lost in the deep before I could start drilling them.
Here is a Chatterer I tied up for the occasion, as I always wanted to try this fly.

Over the course of a single week, I landed 13 salmon, and lost 4. I took 8 salmon on this Chatterer, the biggest being just over 10 kilograms. Here is a picture of that big one:

The record fish for the week, I took on a Colonel per Tolfrey, however:

Other successful flies include the Black Eagle (Francis) and the Popham (original version with the double ic). It was fantastic to see classics work, and conclude the first phase of a learning experience that started in 2013. I do apologise for fishing only authentic exotics. I did release 11 of the fish.
Thanks for looking, and to this forum also a thanks, for getting me started on my journey, back then.
