    I have been fishing South Puget Sound for the last five days straight at the evening high tide and as it falls cutthroats have been flying around in the first 20 feet of shoreline. I assumed they eating marine worms like all the seagulls were, no takes from any fish but a seagull took it. haha. Anyone have any suggestions or comments about what may be going on? Thanks.

    White wooly buggers imitate the pile worms ok
    You could try a articulated chenille pattern

    Other than that keep grinding
    Maybe slow the retrieve

    My hits have have been on slow stripped flies drifted behind the skiff

    Good luck

    Are you sure they are cutts?
    They could also be smaller resident coho. Seem this is about the time of year you'll start to see them happily jumping around.
    Have you tried a euphausiid or amphipod pattern yet?

    The Gig Harbor fly shop has some nice marine worm imitations, and other sea run / rezzie flies.

    skin in the usual way, marinate overnight and then on the bbq.
    make sure you get all the feathers off, though ;)

    Ain't no such thing as a "sea" gull, they be gulls. They are in Montana and other inland places, without a sea. Look at any bird ID books and look up "seagulls' what do you find, nada. Like Canadian geese - geese don't have a nationality. Canada goose / geese is correct.

    I had a prof that trained me well in the ways of flying critters.
