    Anyone else doing any good? I saw this one being landed, but didn't see anymore while I was fishing.

    You completely misinterpreted my post, but I guess that adds to its greatness.

    I have been super excited about finding coho from the beach this year after Nick introduced me to the possibilities last year. I even plan to explore on my own a bit. I have decided that I will catch one under an indicator this year. When I do it will completely revolutionize the game, I'm telling you, it is on! ;)

    just to piss you off, i'm gonna tie up some krill flies and get a coho on the indicator out at swiftsure this summer. then i will own the seminar circuit.

    the funny thing is that an indicator out there during the krill hatch would catch far less fish than a clouser or popper... so the indicator would be the jedi way ;)

    Boobie as the indicator or "under" an indicator? If it as the indicator, that's just a dry dropper, doesn't count. Now under an indicator and then with a dropper under the boobie, now we are talking!

    How do you know? Have you tried a krill pattern worked under an indicator in a specific zone versus a clouser? You doing it before me would just make me envious, it wouldn't piss me off. The thing that would piss me off would be not being there when it happened.

    I've already done te SRC under an indicator - it works. It was hard to get them to not hit the indicator vs. the actual fly. So then I threw on one of the cast a bubbles (an indicator like thing that you partially fill with water that will cast a mile on one of my kids' snoopy rods) and an SRC hit the bubble numerous times on the retrieve, in the end, a marine worm like fly under an actual indicator works quite well for SRC. I just prefer the feeling of a strip strip strip BAM, fishon.

    I have not, but I have had one of the best pacific salmon fly fishermen on the boat intent on catching a fish on a krill pattern. He eventually got one, but quickly switched to a baitfish pattern after watching his fishing partners catch fish after fish while he worked his ass off getting one on a krill pattern. The silvers out there do not target individual krill but swim through the schools either with their mouths open or taking big bites in the thick clouds of krill. My experience is that salmon feeding on thick krill are feeding in a way that makes matching the hatch pretty tough.

    You don't have to worry about that as it will never happen. Giving up the three best parts of saltwater fishing (explosive visual takes, the feel of the grab, and a system that casts well) to stare at a bobber? I'd rather bucktail :confused:. The lure of seminar fame just doesn't cut it.

    If this is the case, you are never going to get on the seminar circuit with a krill fly under a bobber.. What you want is a krillage, a hundred thousand krill flies attached to a large pool toy plastered with corporate logos and studded on its underside with gopros.
