Saw a guy a couple years ago catch a 59 lb King Salmon on the Gulkana river in Alaska with a fly rod. The river was flowing 7-8 knots and the fish made 7 runs of over 200 yards downstream on him. the fight lasted almost and hour. He was having a blast. Everyone on the riverbank quit fishing while we watched him fight and land the fish. Takes a great deal of skill and touch (when to pressure the fish and when not), I can tell you that.

I've been fishing from my paddleboard for a couple of years now - mostly for sunfish, bass and shad on the james. I use a 3wt outfit for that but looking to procure a 9wt and start getting after the stripers on the lake. Any thoughts on patterns, flies that are working well right now? I'll be fishing this upcoming weekend early in the morning. Thanks!
