    Based from my experience too with East side SRC's Steve is right.

    In addition, read up what Preston posted earlier.

    Even better, do a search on Preston's or Les Johnson's previous posts, as those are GOLD.

    Since he was fishing with Jeff Delia, I'm sure it is a Delia's Squid, basically a gold cone head, pearl chenille body and tan marabou tail. It's a very simple, but effective pattern. Roger and I both hooked up with rezzies fishing Delia's Squid on Thursday.

    Kylesw, I sent you a PM.

    I usually tie the Delia conehead squid as a tube fly pattern. Therefore I use a Gamakatsu SC-15 #4 hook. If I tie them on a shank hook, I'll use a TIEMCO 9394 # 8 hook.

    On Thurs. it was a "cat and mouse game" that the resident coho usually won. However, if Steve or I were able to cast a Delia conehead squid pattern near them, they would really slam it. Over the last month or two the resident coho have liked an olive/white or chartreuse/white clouser minnow pattern but last week they did not like those patterns. I switched to the Delia conehead squid pattern and immediately started hooking resident coho. The pattern is becoming one of my go to patterns. In the summer I use a floating version of the Delia conehead squid pattern and have had outstanding topwater success with it for sea-run cutthroat.
