The Pink Ping Pong – A Pink Salmon’s Favourite Edible Toy!

Pink Salmon Ping Pong

Hello friends I just finished tying myself up a box of Pink Salmon flies for the upcoming season. One of my all time favourites for local beach fishing has always been the Pink Ping Pong. This fly gained it’s name for the fact that Pink Salmon love to smash it around in shallow saltwater.

Fish this fly with a Rio Aqualux clear intermediate sinking line and a 6′  8lb. Rio Salmon Steelhead Tapered leader.
