I got bored.
Good job on the tye. I can't find much info on the Pickleback. I would like to see how big the population is in the Sound. We do know there are 2 less
Cool tie, plaegreid, though to match the one I found I think you'd need to double the length. That said, I would gladly fish that fly.
I figure there have to be little ones out there, right?
And I don't know how well it fishes, but I'll let y'all know when I try it out. Think I might want to throw some softex or something on about 3/4 of the mid-section to keep it all together.
How would you cast a 10" long fly with 2 hooks from fouling every cast?
Mmmmmmmmagic? Not sure. Clip a hook, probably. BUT WHICH ONE? Dun dun dun!

For what its worth, it was eaten head first. Might be worth keeping that front hook. But with such a long fly its tempting to try to keep both just in case.
That fish is called a gunnel. People mistakenly call them eels but true eels do not have pectoral fins. don't remember the scientific name at the moment. Gunnels are not common feed for salmon as they usually hide under or around rocks. This one must have been caught out in the open.
Very common in PS. Caught hundereds of them as a kid off Kayak Point County Park pier. Also, I was on a bottom trawler (sampling for contaminate) a few years ago in the Nisqually reach and they were one of the most common species collected.
Absolutely not a gunnel.......
Sorry to dredge up an old post, but I tied this thing up the other day and was all, shit, I think there was a thread about things that look like this. Turns out there was! So enjoy.
