    I had heard about a small fly shop in Sea View, WA a few months ago, so I decided to find the shop when I was there over the long weekend. The shop is owned by Chuck Cameron mentioned in the opening post. He's 81 and still tying flies and fishing the local waters. What a nice gentlemen! The shop is nothing more than small room off the side of his house, but well stocked with his fly tying creations. If you are in the area I recommend you stop by for a visit and to pick up some terrific flies.

    I could get a hold of Chuck Cameron for you, he is personal friend of mine. He would be happy to show you that reverse spider, He does have good luck with it.

    One of my favorite coho flies, many a fish has fallen for this one.

    Thanks, rainbow. I plan to look up his fly shop next time I drive down that way. I might go check out a couple of small year-round ponds near there that I've never fished.

    Speychucker, Thanks, I like the looks of that. I think it could be done up nicely on a tube, too.

    Pink. Anywhere from 2-6 inches long, of bunny strips. Or Pollywogs in Pink. Lots of fun.

    At least in AK they aren't picky.....

    Superb pattern for Coho, Pinks and Chums off the beach and in estuaries. Also very effective in blue and in a darker green and tied with a red thread head.
