    As you may see I am new to this list and have been lurking in the background gleaning information for the past few weeks. Moving from Idaho a few years ago I did not realize that people fly fished from the beaches (not much in the way of saltwater except on the roads in Idaho). I finally decided to give it a try this morning at one of the local beaches. In spite of the fact that I am a novice fly-fisher I did land a 14'' src within the first 30 min. What are the chances on the first outing to hit the right beach,pick the right time and fly ( a white on orange ribbed resembling a cooked shrimp!). I hope to find this one again perhaps when he is 16 or 18 inches.
    Thank you all for your information. see you on the beach

    Nice work! Welcome to the addiction!
     
  5. Judging by your location in Quilcene, there are plenty of nice oyster beds around, you should be able to pick up a few more! Good job!

    oyster beds are great place to look for SRC's. Good times, your first beach salmon can't be too far away

    As I get more familiar with some of the beaches and fly patterns I have no doubt that
    this will be a long lasting relationship. As is my relationship with fly fishing the rivers.
    but If I tie into a salmon off the beach there will be intense negotiations at my house
    as to weather or not the work needed around there is at all necessary.
    Thanks for all your replies

    a salmon is very possible around there. Hit up the bay/anywhere north of bay in canal in next few weeks/months and there will be some hatchery fish moving in.
