Now that we have discussed some locations to search out these silver prizes, lets look at flies. Pinks are typically fairly easy to catch. First, they usually roam in packs and second, they seem to eagerly attack any small buggy looking fly…on one condition.
The fly must be pink!
Right now the local beach fishing is really getting going and the Squamish won’t be far behind. Below are a few tried, true and tested beach flies designed with pink salmon in mind. Be ready though, these patterns have been known to fool other species such as coho salmon and cutthroat trout.
If you tie your own flies or are considering giving it a go try these patterns:
Hook: TMC 9394 #10 – 6 Tail: Pearl mylar tubing Under Body: Pink floss Over Body: Pearl Mylar Tubing Wing: Pearl Mylar Tubing + 4 strands Pink Crystal Flash Thread: UTC 70 Pink
