We get really excited around here when the salmon start to show up in summer & fall. We fish for coho from the kayak or beach and either troll for them (using bucktail flies) or cast (using clousers).
This assortment of strung out coho clousers gets you 2 of each (8) color.
From the beach we like using a Rio Coastal Quickshooter whereas on the kayak we use a Rio Striper or Rio Outbound Short S6. We keep the leader short (6') and about 10-12lb. Salmon are not leader shy!
