DR.MATT ZACCHEO PERFECTS POOL FISHING FOR KINGS....'CALIFORNIA STYLE"

After 3 days of heavy deep water pool swinging, Dr. Matt Zaccheo, a critical care specialist from Kalamazoo perfected the art of swinging clear intermediate Rio aqua-lux lines and boss/comet flies from the old California king days!

 I have just been perfecting this technique for the past 7 years and finally learning more nuances about the suspension, drift, timing of day and strikes etc. A
Also, the salmon's behavior (porpoising, etc.) greatly reveals if they are players or chasers!.

 Matt hit 10 salmon in our Gray Drake pool swinging all day Saturday and had a magnificent experience with these fish that are not given their full due title of being the 'KING" OF SALMON!"

CONGRATS DR. MATT !!!
 River still low, BUT...............NEVER have we seen as many salmon since 1999/2000- they are everywhere!!!!!!!!

Caddis are all but done, but blue-winged-olives are everywhere and some brownies are targeting them if they haven't been persuaded to the "salmon egg crack"!
