    Windy on Thursday--no fish.
    Much better on Friday, saw some Orcas, no fish.
    Very nice and calm today--had something on briefly but not much of a head shake so I suspect it was a searun. A few other follows, too. Otherwise, no fish.

    It's probably time to start thinking about steelhead, but that can be even more frustrating.

    I"m still perplexed that we had all those orcas for the whole day and still no fish?

    I was at my not-so-secret alternative W. Seattle beach today, and had to share it with two seals. Plenty of cormorants diving for bait, too. Mystifying...but then again, if I had my intermediate head and some Clousers, I might have done better. That popper is so addictive....

    Should have fished with a 20wt for the Orcas! A baby seal fly works awesome for the transient pods and a salmon fly, size 20/0 for the local pods! :cool:

    Last gasp today...

    Hit both beaches, and nothing.

    Thursday, I leave to beat my brains out for steelhead....
