    I just got salt Spey and Cascadekiller flies in yesturday. They look perfect guys and I love your spey pattern Salt Spey, i will send out a few of my favs in exchange of your generosity. My flies are done. I will be sending out two patterns of my own to everyone. One is a skunk spade, the other is a p-bear hairwing. Happy tieing and good fishing.

    I am most often found perched on the square end of a flats skiff humpin' for tarpon, bones, and permit trying to conjure a way to spend more than a week a year swinging the two-hander for steel while there are still a few to be found, my real angling passion after all these years. God willing, next summer, should you come across a sun-scarred old fart stumbling lost along an OP stream with a long rod and a few somewhat pretty flies,hopefully, that would be me. Be kind if I ask for directions. Thanks for your kind words. Bill

    salt spey,
    fishing the flats aint a bad life either. I think you're just feeling a bit steelhead deprived down there. The OP is an awesome place and if we were to cross paths there I would be more than happy to provide directions. I would say however the OP is much more a winter/spring show. There are summer fish but wild ones are increasingly rare and while there are fish to be caught, most are hatchery strays, especially on the Hoh. I'd either spend a few extra bucks and go all the way to the skeena system, or focus my energy on the columbia system and its tribs. Thats where you're more likely to find me fishing that lovely fly you've tied up.
    Tightlines,
    Will

    Salt Spey,
    I fish the upper columbia tribs and would take you fishing anytime you wanted to go. (Come in DECEMBER for uncrowed big fish fishing)

    Thank you guys for your generous offers. Be careful what you wish for, however, as I would have to have a tarpon kick your ass to repay the kindness. Some times that ain't purty but it is something to see. Makes a grown man either start to cry or wish he could!! Bill
