Default King Mackerel on Fly

Snagged my first King on fly the weekend before last. 12wt with sinking line. Fast 2 hand strip (it about yanked it out of my hand). Fish hit probably 10ft below the surface. Instantly put me in the backing and made a couple solid runs. Stoked!

Also got my first AJ on fly but it was small. Caught them in 100ft of water. marked fish up high in the column and blind casted. Ate a weighted rabbit strip fly I tied.

Mylar tube flies work great for kings. Use a long shanked hook and make the fly about 5 inches long.
