Well here is a quick report from the stave. Got there this morning after dropping my son off at school and picking up my brother to find that the area we wanted to fish was pretty quiet with fishermen which was perfect. I put on my new fly pattern for this year and a few casts later I got a nice hatchery doe weighting at just over 7lbs. I also got a coho jack which I released and a nice buck chum also released. This was my brothers first day with the fly and he lost a chum. Since he brought his drift gear as well I decided to take him to a spot that I know almost no one goes to. And when we got there I was right. There was no one there. I rigged him up with a purple and pink jig and he had a fish on every drift. They hammered them so hard he hardly had to set the hook. So once he was doing fine I put on my chum fly and I too was getting fish. All female too. So I ended up with my hatchery coho and 2 chrome female chums. He ended up with 2 chrome female chum as well. Here is a picture of the coho. Taken on my cell phone.

way to go flyguy!

I did mention on a previous forum last night that another guy using the same type of jigs was hooking fresh chums with every cast. I even took a close up pic of the jigs (still in the package from Army & Navy) & posted it on this site for other guys to try it on.
This proves beyond a doubt that this jig is a killer for chums & even cohos.

Sounds like a great day. I used to fish the Stave a lot especially when it was catch and release. The opening of Dogs to retention kind of ruined it. Too bad since I only live down the road in M.R. maybe I'll give it another try. I do like the Squish for Dogs. :yummy:

Great to see Hos caught at the Stave Fly.

I might take another stab at fly fishing at the Stave, around the toilet bowl. What type of fly patterns should I target those Hos that are jumping and laughing at me.

I was out at the Stave yesterday as well. I had decided to give Bent Rods' jigs a really good try and WOW! is all I can say.

I was using the Chum patterned jigs tipped with shrimp with my float set super short, only a few feet. Once I found some nice water away from the crowds it was a fish a cast with the most productive jig colour being purple with burgundy underlay, although all the bent rods' jigs caught fish and held amazing, great hooksets all in the upper lip.

The shrimp tip seemed to really help, and getting a totally neutral drag free drift was also the ticket.

Man I am sold on the bent rods jigs now, going to have start stocking up and tying some of my own...

does belles sports in mission or hub sports in abby have any
I see that Bent Rod is on this forum so I would PM him to find out where his jigs are being sold. Although you could always go with a lesser quality jig but Bent rod's are by far the best. The quality of the jig hook is top notch. My brother has hooked over 20 chum in a row and the hook still looks brand new and he has not even had to sharpen it.
