  2. Below is a summary of the sections which I will cover at the Spring Orvis Day presentation where I will talk about my approach/thoughts to fly fish for sea-run cutthroat on Puget Sound. It will be 1 1/2 to 2 hours depending on how long my soft spoken voice holds up! There will be 1 to 3 page handouts for each section.

    1. Life cycle of sand lance and implications for Puget Sound fly fishers(15 min.).
    2. Tie Sand Lance Skater pattern. It is an extremely effectiive topwater sand lance pattern which was devised last summer(15min.).
    3. When, where, and how to use topwater sand lance pattern for sea-run cutthroat(15 min.).
    4. Finding prime locations for sea-run cutthroat(15 min.).
    5. Strategies for sea-run cutthroat fisheries(15 min.).
    6. Boat setup for fly fishing on Puget Sound(15 min.) This section will be at the end so that those individuals not interested can leave.

  3. Marked my calender.. Thanks Leland and Roger.
  4. I have always wondered how I might scheme to get a seat on Captain Stephens boat. For, while I know some things about fishing, I know next to nothing about fishing from a boat. Leland delivers another top notch presenter. That's why I shop at orvis, even if I find it for less on the net.
  5. Leland is away on a fishing trip to Ambergris this week so he wanted me to bump this thread.

    There will be 12 flies of a new top water sand lance pattern that will be given away, Plus, I just finished 23 pages of write-up and photographs that will be handouts. Hope to see some of your fellow WFF's there.
