    Looking to expand my beach box beyond the pink and green baitfish. If anyone can post your ties that you found effective from the beach that would be helpful. Thanks.

    The chartreuse over hot pink clouser I posted earlier worked well.
    It went 6 for 10 on coho this weekend over a couple of half days.
    It is beat up but was still getting bit when I left the beach today.

    Nice! I got my second pink on my own tie today and it felt pretty good. Also I like how this thread has progressed lets keep this going! I like this in place of buck tail.

    I call it "Nuttin-Fancy", I'm pretty sure Stonefish's are illegal ;)

    I'm in the midst of tying up some more of these guys tonight. They have been very popular with the coho lately. Too much so, in fact, as I tied on my last one last night

    Chartreuse over pink has been my go to fly this season after it did well for me last season. I've been tying them clouser style with "fish scale" material and a decent amount of the standard pearl flashabou b/w the colors extending past the end of the body material. The regular flashabou swims really well. I'll try to remember to post a picture later.

    Ok, here's what I've been using as described above. I also tie it in chartreuse over chartreuse, pink over pink, and either color over white/shrimp. I've even had a couple herring guys ask what I'm using after multiple hookups when they were getting no love.

    Seems like there is a theme here... I don't get to fish the salt much being a drysider but these clousers have done me good
