As a fisheries biologist for some four decades, I focused much of my angling and professional passion on Chinook salmon. Eventually, I discovered the challenges and rewards of fly fishing for kings in the estuaries. It's fair to say that my life these days is framed around the seasons of the Chinook runs on the Oregon coast. A Chinook fishery conducted by fly rod anglers in coastal rivers of North America is documented by a series of articles scattered about in fishing magazines; by Russell Chatham in his book "The Angler's Coast;" and the movie 'Rivers of A Lost Coast' by Justin coupe and Palmer Taylor. I composed this book as a journal to document the favorite Chinook flies tied by 24 Oregon salmon anglers. I hope you enjoy these images and each angler's commentary. [Jay Nicholas, September 2015] Justin Coupe says: "I really enjoyed (this) book - it brought me back to the culture of the salmon fly fisher that I embraced during the making of the movie (Rivers of A Lost Coast). The foreword is excellent and Rob Russell did a fantastic job laying the scene and parameters of the book. Great work Jay, glad someone captured the history . . . . . because no one else is." Note: I always recommend that each person who purchases these soft cover books take them down to a business like OFFICEMAX or FEDEX to get them spiral bound. The books will wear better and it is nice to be able to lay the book flat open on fly bench too. Thanks very much for your support.
