    I'm going to be visiting the area next week and my goal is to catch a cutty in the salt while I'm there. I need to tie up a few bugs this weekend - I'm planning on tying some of Roger's sand lance tubes and picking up the stuff to tie some beach poppers at the Orvis shop on my way through. Any other must haves this time of year?

    mini-decievers are the hit for me, olive back. Full size decievers in a white color caught me one too.

    IMO A #6 olive/white clouser could be the only fly you ever fish in the sound.
    of course that would be boring, but they do work and mimic a lot of the bait we see. Cutties though are opportunistic and if you stick a fly in their face, you'll likely get a strike.

    Do not forget the Conehead Squid! Known to work in the northern Hood Canal and around the Port Townsend area.

    Thanks Ron. The Kilowatt Red is actually more effective in the Fall and Winter months, although I haven't tried it much during the summer. It works best if stripped hard twice after the cast lands, THEN twitched with short hard twitches.
