Andrew’s Silver Holographic Needle Fish

Andrew’s Silver Holographic Needle Fish

It was very early in the AM and the ocean had just setup a perfect tide line in front of me. All I could hope for now was the salmon would get pushed in with the tide line in hopes of finding the baitfish (needlefish and herring) to feed on. I cast my clear intermediate slime line and silver holographic needle fish pattern directly into the tide line and let it slowly sink for 5 seconds. Then gave the line a few long slow strips and then YANK! “There’s one I shouted” as a the head of a chrome bar shone not far under the surface before it turned and ran for the middle of the ocean.
