Epic Fight Yields 26 pound Chinook

Epic Fight Yields 26 pound Chinook
Biggest Salmon on the Fly for this Fisherwoman!

KAIT HATTON

BEL AIR MD



Our "Trout Lout" Salmon Camp trip to Pulaski, NY rolled around a few short weeks after having pins removed from my surgically repaired left hand. My physical therapist built a special splint to help me better hold the rod ... but it was on my OTHER rod when this very lively male Chinook (King) Salmon smashed my fly on the 7 weight rod I was using at the time. A 15 minute battle ensued until, finally, my brother Drew netted my biggest salmon yet, this feisty 26 pounder!
