I made it out yesterday for my first ever day chasing cuts on salt with a fly rod. Golfman44 took me out in exchange for steelhead (and then as it turned out stillwater information). I landed one in the first spot we stopped and missed three others. What I discovered was if a fish rose and you could land your fly quickly by it the fish would take. I witnessed four rises that I could cast to quick enough and on all the fish took my fly. I fished three different patterns, so I really don't think the pattern matters much. I did see some chum fry at our first spot, but not many. We moved to another area, and I did see a fish rise there but in an attempt to fish a deeper water slot with some current I had put on an indicator and a marine worm pattern. I still had it on when that fish rose. I casted hard and my indicator slipped down to my fly. Two strips later the fish came up and slammed my indicator. I looked to be a nice fish but I didn't have a hook attached to the indicator so I lost him. I'm looking forward to really chasing silvers this summer again.
