Looking for some Pink Salmon Flies? This simple fly was very effective in the estuary. It was named for Finch Creek at Hoodsport where it was fished successfully on the large pink run before the huge crowds of snaggers arrived. Pinks are great fighters for their size and a worthy adversary on the fly, especially on lighter tackle. A 5 wt is a good all around rod.
