If you think that you’ve seen a picture of this fish before, it’s because you have.
Luke Filmer – Blackwater Fish Replicas just finished the record Coho Replica from 2012 and it is stunning. He believes it is one of his finest reproductions with the exact dimensions recreated and individual spots on the fish’s upper back painted. It will arrive in Bozeman next week – just in time for me to admire it once more before Jay Peck and I hunt for the next fish of a lifetime on September 7-9.
Looking at these pictures brought back memories of the unique experience that I had the pleasure of sharing with Jay. I’m SOOOO glad that we released this fish to create the next generation of Coho’s or Coho hybrids. I’m also glad that I made that “one more cast” at 4:00 PM on September 19th. After landing 24 Chinooks and a Coho that day it would have been easy to say “I’m done, how can I top that.”
If you’re signed up for the Fall Field Campaign, your own trophy awaits.
