    Anyone fish streamers for salmon?

    × So where did the fish he had scared with the Collie Dog go? Back out to sea? Cause if the they had moved on upstream those following on would have caught them. A Collie Dog fished sub surface is no worse than any other fly. Fished on a full floater it certainly can stir the fish up.

    Tick repellent
