I fly fished the South fork Salmon River yesterday and he tried Green butted Skunks 1/2 the day and did not get a hit. He switched to my Silver and Black Spey and we hooked 7 Chinook landing a releasing 4 Wild fish. We used Tippets composed of 60#, 3ft; 44#, 2ft; and 25#, 1ft; all tippet sections loop to loop, with flat twist lead wrapped at the last loop section to get the Spey flies down to the Salmon about 3 miles down stream of 2bit 4bit Creek Bridge, or 1 mile above Goat Creek.

For fast/deep waters what is the general length/lb strength of leaders you would use for Chinook? Also wanted to know if anyone has had luck with a Green Butt Skunk for Chinook? Tight Lines
