    SRC fishing is something I have pursued the past 15 years, it is perplexing. Last night I had the best night on the water of my life, spent with my favorite fishing partner. Fished from 7-9:30 pm, incoming, first hour and a half not a single strike, switched flies multiple times. At 8pm my mom hooked the first fish. The next hour until dark was unbelievable. We hooked landed and released nearly 20-30 fish. Multiple fish in the 18-20" range with two over 20". The average size and girth of these fish was unmatched. It was an evening I will never forget. Not sure how many hungry cuts were in the rip, but it was as if we were fishing a stocked pond...

    This was a great and happy read. "Every dog has his day" as they say. I love it that you are fishing with your mom too. These wild trout are an adventure for sure. Just about the time you think you are the greatest sea-run cutthroat fisherman on earth, catching countless wild trout with abandon, they get tight-lipped and are uninterested in any of your flies. And around the moment that you least expect it, having exhausted the possibilities of flies and presentations etc., you have the fishing trip of a lifetime, and you can't keep them off of your hook. "Long live the Cutts" indeed

    You nailed it, Bob! I returned last night with confidence. 2 hours, 2 fish to hand. They were there, feeding more prevalently on something in the surface film. I was too stubborn to change flies, I was humbled.

    Awesome!

    I took a couple friends out yesterday afternoon on the incoming tide and didn't have the same experience. However we were surrounded by fry jumping up all over and cuts chasing them around us. So cool and frustrating. I love these fish.
