Pattern Chum Fry Patterns?

#1
Hi there:

I have been browsing the patterns and there are some amazing tyers on this site.

I am going to be chasing some cutthroat on Sunday, and rumor has it, with the warm weather that the chum fry are starting to emerge.
Anyone care to share a pattern or two with us?

I would post pics of my patterns, but, the ole digital does not have a macro setting :(

Thanks in advance

If you have an opportunity to get a peek at Thomas P. Quinn's new book, The Behavior and Ecology of Pacific Salmon and Trout (U of W Press, 2005, I just received a review copy yesterday, I'm not sure it's in the stores yet), take a look at the photos of both pink and chum fry. It gives a good idea of the right colors and proportions. I haven't had time to do more than flip through it yet, but it looks very interesting.

That book is in the University Bookstores. I went to the launch of the book, and he gave a great talk about how much there is still yet to be learned on the subject. But yes... great pictures, and a good (albeit a little dry) book!
