    salt spey,
    fishing the flats aint a bad life either. I think you're just feeling a bit steelhead deprived down there. The OP is an awesome place and if we were to cross paths there I would be more than happy to provide directions. I would say however the OP is much more a winter/spring show. There are summer fish but wild ones are increasingly rare and while there are fish to be caught, most are hatchery strays, especially on the Hoh. I'd either spend a few extra bucks and go all the way to the skeena system, or focus my energy on the columbia system and its tribs. Thats where you're more likely to find me fishing that lovely fly you've tied up.
    Tightlines,
    Will

    Salt Spey,
    I fish the upper columbia tribs and would take you fishing anytime you wanted to go. (Come in DECEMBER for uncrowed big fish fishing)

    Thank you guys for your generous offers. Be careful what you wish for, however, as I would have to have a tarpon kick your ass to repay the kindness. Some times that ain't purty but it is something to see. Makes a grown man either start to cry or wish he could!! Bill

    Just below the surface on a floater and give them a slight twitch on the swing,,this causes the wing to pulsate. It is a deadly fly in my area and thought it would serve you summer steelheaders well. Can you post a pic of them kid?

    For sure... I will post a pic within a few days. I think that it will serve us all well during times when our fish are in low clear water. Its a super cool fly. I am suprised that you all tie them on such small trout hooks. Awesome Tie Salmon Chaser.

    Speykid,

    The pattern I tied is called the Carron Fly and the particular recipe is from the book Autumns on the Spey. Sorry for the confusion.

    Regards,
