Angry Humpies

Chris Hunt breaks an eight-weight in a fight with a pink salmon and takes the opportunity to describe all the great fall fishing that can be had on Alaska’s Prince of Wales Island. “After a short walk among towering fir and spruce trees and through patches of tall dense grasses and ferns, and after donning my polarized sunglasses on that soggy afternoon, I was able to spot several dollies finning below a pod of migrating pinks. Each pink was probably about 22 inches long and weighed close to three pounds. The dollies were a bit smaller, but a few of the olive-colored fish rivaled the spawning salmon in size.”
