I was at Ebey's Landing. The fishing hasn't exactly been hot but some silvers are being taken. Despite my bursitis I wanted to fish the fly rod tonight because the wind was down. As it often is in front of a storm. I was casting well, for me anyway. The sunset was magnificent. Casting a pink and coral glow on the slack tide so the ocean shimmered in animated, cartoon like colors and lighting the nearby silver lined clouds on fire. Then a wide, rolling orange and black thunderhead started moving in from the east. It was so different from the sunset it was like looking at two different skies just by turning around. Just before the sun was down a rainbow appeared that sliced right through the thunderhead. The panorama of the sky was as colorful and dynamic as I have ever seen. The lightning started about the time the sun went down. I continued casting my chartreuse streamer while watching jagged shards of electricity strike the peninsula as twilight slowly drained the colors from the sky. The lightning started closing in. Behind me now. Then in front of me again. The rain started. I decided to be safe and call it a night. One last cast... And I caught my first silver on a fly rod.
