I don't see many fly fishers on the beach (maybe you're all waiting for pinks) but I've made two trips out into the Kitsap Peninsula, Area 9 beaches and have had a terrific time. Last Monday, on two different beaches, using a pink #2 beach popper, I landed 5, lost 4 at the hand and had many many follows. This morning, in a blustery, rainy dawn, me and three friends landed a total of 5 coho and lost or missed a bunch in the two hours we fished before catching the ferry back to the shop. Todays coho were all unmarked and between 4 and 6 pounds. Man, do I love July coho who are driven to do nothing but eat! Leland.
