    There are a whole bunch of fish everywhere. I saw about 30 caught this morning. I went two for two in about an hour. The other two hours were skunk city.

    Took two other board members out for a quick morning outing. Met up with another buddy + 1.

    Me: 2 for 9
    Bestbuilder: 1 for 3?
    Nick Clayton: 0 for 1 (I failed as a guide)

    My buddy (ten80): 1 for 2
    His buddy (not on the board): 1 for 3

    No other fish caught by the groups of gear chuckers.

    Hey Evan, what material was you tungsten cone head fly made with? I saw where you posted the picture but wasn't sure if you ever game the materials. I tied some flies up last night that were as close as I could figure. Having mainly trout-fly materials I was limited to bucktail and marabou for pink materials. So I tied some with pink marabou (sparse tail and marabou wrapped up the body), thin wire counter wrap for durability, and a standard cone head with some wraps of lead up in the cone (no tungsten on hand). Tied those and some pink/white clousers (very sparse). Guess I need a trip to the shop for more pink stuff :)

    Eh, don't overthink it. Materials don't matter. One day, I was catching fish on a tattered fly that had nothing left but some threads hanging off, and a pink cone head.

    Sure, I was just thinking I haven't seen too many salt flies with maribou and wasn't sure if it maybe wasn't as durable or something. However, I have some buggers that have held up to many many trout so... Well anyways, I guess I now have some sparse pink flies so we'll see what happens.

    8/26 Dash Point Report

    Fished from 5:30 to 8:00, outgoing tide.

    The usual chaos on the pier, but a lot less gear guys wading (only about 10).

    Saw about 20 fish hooked on gear.

    I was 1 for 2

    Seemed like a normal mid-run type of morning. I don't think we are at the end yet.

    Steve - Good to see you. I was glad to read that you hooked a few.

    Hooked around 15 today. Still not that easy to find... My son had one stolen 2 feet away from the boat by Mr seal. He also used the head of a pink to catch a dog fish on a fly rod. It was kind of entertaining to watch the dog fish come up and grab the head

    I agree that today felt like a mid-run day. The fish seem to be on every-other-day. You do have to put in your time in order to get them. There were two other flyfishers nearby and they hooked up a few but they were using 6 wt. rods and no baskets. That's a tough catch this year. I've used my 6 wt. but was literally worn out by the time I was able to land the fish. That may be because I'm getting old but I don't think so.

    Thanks a bunch for showin me the ropes this morning Evan! Had a great time. Evan got me into my first first pink ever on a fly rod, although I was not able to land it I did get to fight it for a while. You most certainly did not fail as a guide!

    I'm itchin to chase some more now.

    Was out for a slow morning at PNP. Josh (Mtnwalker) had a nice one on for about 30 seconds. I had 3 shakers (4"-10"). Saw Banzai up there throwing the two-hander. Didn't look like there were many fish caught by anybody today.
