    My wife and I rented a home today about 7 miles south of Coupeville only a couple hundred yards from the beach. I am not sure about the fishing possibilities but it is a beach and it is mine to share with one other property. balcony.JPG I will be a resident here soon!

    Sweet!

    I expect you're jonesin' to play in the salt but two suggestions, if I may:

    1. Stripping basket (beach fishing will be so much easier)
    2. Post-trip freshwater soak/rinse (your gear will last much longer)

    Hope you have fun up here! :)

    Your flly fishing options will be limited, but take the time to enjoy island life for a while. It can be addictive from what friends tell me.

    Congrats! If you enjoy lake fishing for trout, you have Lone and Pass not too far away!

    Welcome! But now I'm just a bit envious of you, no long drive or ferry to fish Lone or Pass. Enjoy!

    Welcome and congratulations! If I am not mistaken, your view is across the sound east to Camano Island. You may find the fishing better most of the time on the other side of Whidbey. The good news is the island is so skinny there, it's less than a ten minute trip.;)

    Envy here. Get yourself a smallish tin boat you can drag up the beach, and a couple crab pots.

    That's nice. Everybody should have a place to live.
