Nice! Are swinging flies for Coho? Or do you cast and strip, or is it a combination of the two?
Jake
Hey Jake,
When swinging for coho, I will lift the rod tip or strip a couple of times and let it settle. When I feel the fly touch bottom I give it a couple of quick strips then pause. This elicits a strike. I have seen coho in clearwater avoid my fly if I simply let it swing but when I pulse it, they have a look.

This fish was hooked on a day when the water clarity was poor and visibility was about 12". I hooked two others on this day under those conditions using the strip and settle action I described.
