Do any forum members spend time bucktailing your flies in PS? I'm interested in your experience and tips. This morning we launched before low tide and headed north toward Lagoon Pt. Along the way I decided to tie on a fly Randy Diefert gave me at a recent club meeting. It's a big bucktail and it looks GOOD! I had the basic bucktail strategy from a Mike Benbow presentation, but I had not tried it myself. I put the 8wt in the rod holder with the tip straight to the fly. Then I dropped my fly into the prop wash of my 10hp kicker and watched it gurgle, pop and waked. I worked the shoreline in and out like I was trolling a cut plug behind mooching sinker. It was not long before I had a decent fish swing and miss. How cool. It happened one more time before I cut the engine to begin the cast/strip. The visual hits are really cool and I'm definitely doing this again, especially as I move from location to location. Mike showed lots of awesome photos of fish taken off Vancouver B.C., often enticing fish out from the kelp beds. Kelp beds are not what they use to be inside Puget Sound, so... I trolled the shallows of eelgrass along the shoreline. Imagine a 12 pound coho slamming the straight line fly! As for the rest of the day... Not many fish caught today where we were fishing. Plenty of boats full of gear fishermen targeting pinks/coho. My friend released a pounder coho and 2 greenling. I boated a solitary male Pink.
