So with all this weather related time on my hands, I've been working on filling in my fly box with better krill patterns, new sizes colors, materials. You've been reading the threads. So I took 'em all down to the old same place in the South Sound here this morning, on a good 13' exchange. It was slow for an hour and a a half, with only a couple of 10" SRC jumpers showing. Tried all the new stuff, plus my traditional spider collection. They all cast well, but with NO takes. Having broken off on a branch down to the 2x fluoro, I finally tied on a chartreuse/white clouser tube fly in the size I usually favor in July, made a long cast and in two strips we were off to the races. It turned out to be a superb trout, around 17", too fat to get both hands around (though I didn't have to touch it), and weighed a couple of pounds. It finally quit burning line after the third trip to the beach, for a clean release. And that was it. But it was better than the steelheading I've been doing.
