    I hit some nice big fat rezzies on Mark's Squimp on Beach XYZ right after the tide turned in the morning
    What a great swap the night before, probably could not stop talking about it
    always nice to get out
    always nicer to catch some

    Not revealing a beach on a successful outing just adds to the mystique and challenge of Coastal Cutthroat fishing and I agree.
    Thanks to Steve K. and Steve R. and Kelvin for the inspiring report.

    The seals/lions were doing well yesterday, off the point at a secret beach in west seattle.

    My reality check was fishing three days in a row last week with one cutthroat to hand. That's the way it is this time of year. Hopefully I will find some coho around one of these days in the next month or two to as well. Now that I look at the tides and read that guys ran out after the historic fly swap, what am I doing sitting here???? To heck with the income taxes I was going to finish up, I'm outa here! There's a hell of an ebbtide today!

    kelvin, were they taken on your Double Reverse Spider? I am going to hit the bench tonight and start adding that amazing fly to my arsenal. I am going to try tying it on a ProTube MicroTube. Something about short shanked hooks on a tube fly that add to my confidence with Coho.

    Thanks for sharing your report. Did you see TyeeChuck?

    I must of been at beach X-1/X. I too saw two eagles. I too was skunked. Then I broke my rod in two places. Casting. That and I paddled with the tide and wind on the way out and against them on the way back. That's a no hitter & a trip back to the farm league.

    At least my wader patch held up. Nothing like self-adherent flashing. (I supposed I should clarify that last sentance but hell, interpret it as you see fit.) I had more fun buying plants at the nursery on the way back to the ferry than I did on the water.

    Hit Beach OMAHA but was met with stiff resistance and was forced to effect a hasty tactical retreat. Reports from friendly forces at beaches UTAH, JUNO and GOLD indicated limited success; 3 POW's from enemy element S.R.C. and 2 from enemy element "Rezie". Friendly forces are currently reorganizing and conducting lateral equipment and intel transfers in preperation of assault on Beach SWORD. Said operation to begin Wednesday at 0 dark 30. Nothing follows.

    Set your decoder ring to 2 mark 5

    go to beach X-5t677fg and use those flies in your small box

    I was using a small white verision of Marks Squimp
    Cindy was tossing my super secret top water new double k reverse spider

    I saw neither Tyee or Chuck
    however ..

    The Jack of spades is the top card
    The pearl is in the river

    Alice has a new dress

    The black cat has fleas
    The trout is a hungry fish

    Hey Freestone, I agree that half of the fun of catching is in the finding and figuring them out...for yourself. For some reason the beach X thing reminded me of the 10 years I spent in an Army operation center. Just having a little fun. Hope my attempt at humor didn't come across as a "nay" vote for your position. A tight lipped fishing partner makes chasing tight lipped SRC much more fun.

    ....said the new guy with thirteen posts who doesn't know where to go. Gotta say though, it was a solid attempt. Can't blame you for trying.

    But seriously though, get yourself out fishing with a few of the folks on this board. Most will be more than happy to show you some good stuff.
