Looks like a few salmon as the biggest.......

Here's mine: A 44" / 36# King from the Salmon River. Taken on a Black bead head Crystal Bugger using a 9' #8 wt St. Croix Legend Ultra.

Matt,
That's quite a lunker.
Quite dark in colour.
Amazes me how you guys have so much sucess with fly on Kings.
Down here the Kings/Chinook have just started their annual run from the sea.
The early catchs are promising 7-10 KG (3-4 Y/O)
I haven't connected yet, but saw a nice 24 pound fish landed last week.
Back to my comment about the flies.
We have limited sucess here with feathered lures, but majority of fish are caught on silver lures.
Prime salmon country is just 10 minutes from where I live.
