MY FUNKY COPPER KILLER-OLD SCHOOL CALIFORNIA COASTAL SALMON SWINGIN IN THE GREAT LAKES!

( new as of today in my "pimp'in for kings and ho's salmon series'- The Funky Copper Killer-deadly!. The copper killer has taken two of the largest pooled up kings at the lodge pushing 30 lbs over the years-2005/2006 were memorable, and this year we already have seen a few ginormous kings entering our rivers-cooler water and temps are all we need and on the way finally-let's hope!)
Each year when I get ready to tie my funky patterns for swinging the pools for wild chinook salmon on the Muskegon, the amazing new mind boggling assortment of materials that Marcos at Hareline shares with me blows my mind and vice- and eventually gets aggressive/active pooled up wild kings to slam them!, as they lie suspended and love sick in pre-spawn mode where they will crush a fly!- no shortage of them in Michigan, especially on the 20 miles of solid spawning gravel and very deep 12-18 feet deep pools the Muskegon has. (recipe below)...cheers, have a great fall!, and we still have a few and getting very fewer dates available btw- but give us a contact and we will see what we can do- look forward to seeing you on the river!)
