The tippet shrimp is one of my favourite fall flies.  That'll work on your north shore tour.
A salmon is a moment of beauty known only to those who seek it.

I am thinking the copper would be considered "weighted"  but the aluminum is lighter than a hook of the same size.  I use plastic and a sinking leader low water and a full sinktip line in the HIGH water conditions.  I am not 100% certain on any of that though

Thanks for the heads up. Never even realized it was on a copper. IMO that would be considered illegal. My understanding is aluminum is ok

I have a bunch of Tungston a friend sent from the UK  that weigh as much as my truck.   I also have a bunch of copper here I never tie much on too as  I hate to put them in my salmon vest by accident

You would probably want to be careful! I know here we can't fish anything that's not plastic. Sinking tip leaders are OK though.
