    I can vouch for the effectiveness of that fly. I've been tying mine with a darker, more burgandy tail, since that's what I had available.... And the head is a bit of a different color cerise.... Very effective fly for sure.

    I remember you posting the pix mtskibum. I thought you may have changed it up a little. I could not quit make out the tail color from the pix. TK for posting it again.

    Now that you said this everyone and their brother is going to show up. Not much of a secret considering the fishermen and nets there 24/7. If you have any other "secrets" about fishing spots, best keep them to yourself. Unless you want the Minter Creek squad showing up.

    I know, chum and mullet is the way to go. Friend should have warned me, but the wind was howling.

    Anyone seeing Chum? I went out last night for a few hrs before darknn nothing was moving except the water and a few ducks. Took out the 6wt to try for a Cut or two. No luck there except you enjoy the ease of throwing my 10' 6wt over my 8wt. Elbow feels much nicer this morning.

    Pretty dead from what I've seen. I'm about ready to call it for the chum this year.

    Are you saying. Dog gone?
    The wife and I stopped by a creek today and watched a few swimming up the creek. My wife's eyes are not good but from the bridge over the creek she could see them. Let me tell you she was thrilled to be close enough to see them and could not get over how big some of them were.
     
  10. we saw a handful last saturday on the skykomish. Fished both the sky in startup and behind the pen as well as wallace river. They certainly arent in the numbers i remember years ago.

    Thats because they are just starting to show up in the Puget Sound, the runs don't reach the peak until late November. Most of the creeks I fish near Gig Harbor don't have fish until Thanksgiving.

    I'll catch chums till the end of December. I live next to a creek that has the latest runs in the puget sound. I'll fish that until Christmas and still land chrome fish. Bagman, try creeks around Gig Harbor.
