    Wow... the things I miss out on while in the field. I'm going fishing, maybe some of you should do the same.

    You are Mumbles, and it is painfully obvious. Did i ever say you were poaching? and yes, you dont know shit. Learning, but right now, you dont know shit.
    All a senior member of an internet site means is that you have spent way too much time staring at a screen. You'll get better advice from guys that hardly ever post but spend all their time fishing. I am heading in the wrong direction that is for sure.
    I think that anyone that has spent much time on the salt knows that these species will share habitat, but if you are honestly targeting SRCs, you will fish different areas than if you are just targeting salmon. The fish overlap, the flies will catch all species, but based on location one can get a pretty good idea what you are targeting.

    Dude, we're still waiting for more detail regarding " . . . but it is possible to fish cutts and not catch/target many salmon."

    It appears you know more than most of the people involved in this thread and are a substantially experienced saltwater fisherperson, so rather than call people names or cast aspersions on their experience or lack thereof, share the info that you think we ought to just 'know'.

    I guess I'm not enough of a salty specialist to get self-righteous or contentious about all this-I figure I'm a real lucky guy if I can get to a beach anywhere, cast the little twinkly thing at the wet part, and hook/release something. Legal fishing practiced with a pure heart and a clear conscience-the bliss of ignorance.
    I'm surprised no one has yet asserted that if you're not using a dry fly, you're a poacher!
    ha ha! I'll go for the obvious troll there...:rofl:

    I believe little debates like this would be wayyy less toxic if conducted on a beach, with flask in hand.

    Fished my local rocky beach where I normally go for SRC...nothing. Hiked a bit north to an area where it is nothing but sand, flat boring sand. Caught three SRC and one Silver. I was fishing for Silvers. I was mumbling all the time..."bring on the silvers" and "no whammy SRC's for me" but still got them.

    Hooker, you are way too full of yourself. Once I have attained your level of knowledge, which may be never I can only pray I don't get so into myself and so up everyone else's ass about how much you know and how they don't know shit. For my my objective is to continue to learn terrain, water, techniques and improve until I can no longer cast. I can only say that i'm sorry that you have reached your pinnacle and have to resort to newbie bashing. That is just as classless as I am clueless.

    As for the senior members, I would think you are not entirely correct yet again. Some of them fish a hell of a lot and still find time to post and share knowledge, not ride anyone's tail about trying to learn and follow the regs as published by the great state of Washington.

    Tight lines to you, regardless of how you have treated me. I had mine tightened this morning, learned a lot, getting in some lunch and I'll be back at it again this afternoon.

    What a wonderful day to be learning out on the water.

    Thread scoreboard:

    Mumbles was on the ropes yesterday, beginning to wilt under Hooker's relentless tail slaps like a wounded sand lance falling out of the bait ball. But today Mumbles scored big by actually going fishing and successfully hooking and landing 2 game species (both in season)! Mumbles takes the overall lead and sheds his newbie status, he is now a man of the salt to be respected by all. Hooker's verbal assaults qualify for anger management class, but all respect his uncompromising ethics & defense of SRC and salmon. Will Hooker unite with Mumbles on the beach to become the North Sound's hottest conservationist-flyfisher ticket?

    Stay tuned:

    OK, I'll delete the reference to 'dude'. :rolleyes:

    So, we (I believe there are a few others additionally to me) are still waiting for more detail regarding your comment " . . . but it is possible to fish cutts and not catch/target many salmon."

    I really would like to know how to fish for cutts and not catch/target salmon when both fish may occupy the same habitat. Seriously. I don't know how that's done, and it appears some of the others participating here don't either.

    Elucidate, elaborate, and educate, please.

    I'd love to chime in again but I have dinner to cook. How about fresh salmon, small, but tender and bright with some asparagus? I do have to keep the wife happy, and she loves to eat fish, so some do make it home from time to time. I'm in a pretty good opening day mood. Sorry if my last few days worth of post brought anyone down but from the looks of it some seemed to have enjoyed the dialog.

    FWIW today I had something break off my only large pink and white clouser. I fished a olive backed sand lance imitator that got a short strike and then I put on an all black clouser, mid sized, with just a couple of strands of that green irredescent flashy crap.

    I hope others found a way to a boat launch or beach today.
