Bella Coola

I had big plans to go to Bella Coola last weekend. There was talk of great coho fishing and I was keen to do some spey casting and landing some bigger northern coho. The plan was to leave Wednesday night and come back Sunday or Monday.

Wednesday wasn’t looking promising because I decided to help out with Emma’s first soccer practice. As well, the forecast was for rain on the weekend. I didn’t feel like driving 10hrs for rain while camping. Thurday morning came, I decided to skip the trip and managed to get a couple days of work in. As luck would have it, this was a great decision. I would still be there if I had gone. I’d also be very cold and probably really tired. I’m sure I would have caught a couple of nice coho though.

Here are some of the types of flies I tied for the trip. I wonder where else these would be good? Maybe the Squamish, it has pretty murky water.
