    No doubt, there's some pretty decent surf up there. A few spots well known, a couple others a little more secretive and tricky to get to. One of the spots is right near where I filmed that wave.

    Coonrad,
    In my 3 years on this board, I have to say, without a doubt, that is the coolest thing I have ever seen. Sure there have been great pics, and great stories, (Thanks Lawless, Healers, etc.) but that is amazing! Thanks so very much for sharing those wonderful times. It gives a normal guy like me something to shoot for!

    Best,
    Griswald

    Very cool, I'm pumped for September!

    The tool that grabs the fish by the lower jaw is a great idea as it requieres less handling of the fish. Is it NW Urban legend that it damages salmon?

    That is one great video. I smell an academy award. You guys should have a monthly competition for best video. "American Fly Fishing Idol"......Mr. Swan would make a great Simon Cowell.....:clown:A poll could determin the winner......too much? I digress.

    Seriously, an excellent piece of work.:thumb:

    That's a boga grip, it's actually not really that great for salmon, at the time I didn't realize it and learned the hardway as I eventually had it slice the bottom jaw in half of a coho. The boga works for helping handle salmon, but they really shouldn't be used to lift a fish's entire weight as it damages the fish. Now on lingcod or rockfish that's a different story, they work great on those. Every time I see myself holding a fish up like that it makes me cringe! Live and learn.

    What Ibn said is absolutely correct. Most of that footage is several years old. At the time, we didn’t realize the damage that a Boga-Grip could cause to Silvers and Humpies. If you use a Boga and support the weight of the fish with another hand (as seen in some of the clips) you can minimize or eliminate the damage, but why risk it? We no longer use them on any Salmon that we plan on releasing. They are great for Rockfish and Lingcod though…
    Craig deserves all of the credit for the film, he did a wonderful job of editing and filming with mediocre casting.
