    The coho this morning were just bumping and mouthing my fly. After losing a few after a couple of head shakes, I tied up a tube fly with the stinger extended just beyond the fly. That seemed to be the ticket and I bonked a nice ocean fish. All said, I ended up one for four.

    Very nice fish Bill! You need a bigger cooler. Gotta love those tight scales.

    Nice looking fish, way to get it done! I went 1/2 for two this morning at the 'point. Got her in but she threw the hook as I tried to beach her and got away.

    Nice work - great looking fish! I may need to start tying some tube clousers it sounds like!

    Matt, I was actually using a Shock & Awe. I got another one today...almost a carbon copy day as yesterday.

    Dave, you need to be out there with me!

    Damn, I wish I was closer so I could hit it before work! I've actually been out sick the last couple days and still thought about going out...guess I should have! haha I just meant a tube fly or stinger setup (for whatever style) to maybe help with the light bites and short strikes that seem to be prevalent.

    Nice work, Sci! I'm picturing you hooking that right after I left the point this morning to head to work.... Sure makes it hard to sit here!

    No kidding!!! Two mornings in a row, after leaving the beach and heading to work, I arrive to find Sci posting fish porn. Rough!

    Nice work man!

    What color is hot right now? I've been fishing a lot of different colors but struggling to find the one.

    Damn you! haha Did you get that right before you left? Man guys were dragging them in to my left and right but no love for me or the other fly guys I saw. Well until I saw you walking off with that!
