Things that make us go Hmmm, Installment #4

Got this guy today.
On a 5" White/Pearl Pink fly.
Which is rather unusual.
Not the fly, the fish. These generally don't bite small flies in the best of circumstances, much less 5" darts ripped at doublehand speed through a small slough.

For those of you who don't know you salmonids, this is a sockeye.

The "Hmmm" factor is due to the fact that this fish was caught in an itty-bitty creek 20 miles, 2 rivers, and a saltwater falls away from the nearest sockeye run.

What the hell was he thinking?
