    kelvin, were they taken on your Double Reverse Spider? I am going to hit the bench tonight and start adding that amazing fly to my arsenal. I am going to try tying it on a ProTube MicroTube. Something about short shanked hooks on a tube fly that add to my confidence with Coho.

    Thanks for sharing your report. Did you see TyeeChuck?

    I must of been at beach X-1/X. I too saw two eagles. I too was skunked. Then I broke my rod in two places. Casting. That and I paddled with the tide and wind on the way out and against them on the way back. That's a no hitter & a trip back to the farm league.

    At least my wader patch held up. Nothing like self-adherent flashing. (I supposed I should clarify that last sentance but hell, interpret it as you see fit.) I had more fun buying plants at the nursery on the way back to the ferry than I did on the water.

    Hit Beach OMAHA but was met with stiff resistance and was forced to effect a hasty tactical retreat. Reports from friendly forces at beaches UTAH, JUNO and GOLD indicated limited success; 3 POW's from enemy element S.R.C. and 2 from enemy element "Rezie". Friendly forces are currently reorganizing and conducting lateral equipment and intel transfers in preperation of assault on Beach SWORD. Said operation to begin Wednesday at 0 dark 30. Nothing follows.

    Cindy was tossing my super secret top water new double k reverse spider

    I saw neither Tyee or Chuck
    however ..

    Hey Freestone, I agree that half of the fun of catching is in the finding and figuring them out...for yourself. For some reason the beach X thing reminded me of the 10 years I spent in an Army operation center. Just having a little fun. Hope my attempt at humor didn't come across as a "nay" vote for your position. A tight lipped fishing partner makes chasing tight lipped SRC much more fun.

    ....said the new guy with thirteen posts who doesn't know where to go. Gotta say though, it was a solid attempt. Can't blame you for trying.

    But seriously though, get yourself out fishing with a few of the folks on this board. Most will be more than happy to show you some good stuff.

    I hit Beach "Z" today with no Kills and no Mia's. I think I'll put my M-16 to bed for a week. It seems it keeps jamming and can't find anything in it's sights.

    Operation Reality Suspension was matriculated for an additional 4 hours for me (evidence below). Offensive tactics directed at this particular target in this specific zone may be suspended for 7 to 14 days while attention is given to Operation Catch A F-ing Steelhead Already. While the former mission has proven successful, missions similar to the latter have been historically unsuccessful. Advanced preparation for Operation Keta Baby Mirage will soon commence.

    I was on beach X yesterday. I caught Y number of Z fish on an ABC fly. But please keep it under your hat.
