We talk all the time about our run of chum salmon being extremely aggressive. They have a reputation for eating a lot of different flies, from leeches, to sculpins, to even flesh and egg patterns. They’re not afraid to hammer a fly, and that’s one of the reasons we think they’re so cool.
Last week however, while mousing for trout, ol’ chumley decided to teach Mickey a lesson, smacking this mouse fly on the surface. We can’t say we’ve seen that too many times, so we were pretty excited when we saw the photo. Oddly enough, we saw it happen again the very next day!
Oh chumley, thanks for keeping us guessing.
