Center Pin 101

 

 

 

I believe this is one of the better center pin instructional videos.

Back in 2008-2009 I fished with an outstanding center pinner on the Salmon River Christopher Tobis.

I have never seen anyone catch salmon and steelhead like him.

He was just back from tours in Iraq while serving in the USMC

Christopher is now a guide in Alaska

While on active duty with a US Army Parachute Infantry Regiment, after another combat deployment in Afghanistan.

When I watch these or any videos I always like to figure where they are.

The past two that I just posted was like a brain teaser.

Had the sun to his back, so the river was moving WNW or NW.

I really couldn't identify  the buildings.

I don't recall seeing bench or chairs that look permanent any where.

The rock formations, hummm (a clue)

 

I know I haven't wet a line in the Lower Fly Zone in more than a decade at least.

But if I had to wager...

But not bet the farm.

Cemetery Pool, Lower Fly Zone

 

If anyone know the location of the videos, please post, I'd like to know.
