    My biggest cutt came on a size 4 egg sucking bunny leech which was crazy weird because I was practicing casting in late march...

    I like thunder creeks a lot as well...

    Also that cutt is freaking giant..

    Wow! That fish is a real beauty! Nice shot, too. I assume now you have a new "secret fly" too? Are those sea lice along its back?
    I have a "Sculpzilla" in my box I would have thrown its way. Or a Shock 'n Awe.
    I have to go tie up a couple of flies and splice one of my lines, then i'm heading up to the rainshadow (great timing... no rain due). I'm going to have to hit a beach up there at the crack-o-dawn after looking at that fish! Tuesday morning, too.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

    how are sculpins fished in salt water, sub surface or on a sink tip? Does color make a difference? Again, great pic!

    Don't scorn those little scud shrimp along the water's edge.

    Good job D3, that’s one beautiful searun.
    Just a side note, it has been my experience (in the salt) with followers and short takes is that if you speed up your retrieve with long pulls at about mid point through the retrieve process many times you can trigger their instinct to take the fly.

    I second the Olive Wooley Bugger, but with a conehead. It is probably the fly I use 80% of the time for SRC's. Exception is in the spring I use Chum Fry patterns.
