Going to break down and tye a few tomorrow. What about a sand lance with a few strands of GID belly along with UV white. I can't see how much good they would do unless you were fishing predawn.
How about some Chum Turds with a GID tail? Fish them in these really early morning low tides that are coming up?

For some reason SCUD comes to mind. I think I will call the Glow in the dark tail Chum Turd a SCUD. Has this been taken?

AK powder monkey. Were/are you a powder monkey? I worked in that field for 38 years.
On your fly it hard to tell GID strands but it looks like the body, tail, and wing are GID?

I like to fish them right before pre-dawn. Get a UV flashlight and you will be set. Also Tie some up and head down to blue creek around 6pm till 2am for steelhead. Think outside the box and you will catch all the fish the people inside the box never will touch.

As I'm sure all of you know by now I'm not from around here. Last week I went out to Pt no Pt just to walk around and enjoy the beach. There was a guy with a big old rod and Penn star drag. He was throwing out what looked like a wire box. I waited for him to reel it back in to see what it was. Lo and behold it was a wire box. I asked him just what it was he was trying to catch in this little 3"X3" wire box. He tells me crabs. You put bait in the wire box and there are lassos on the corners and when the crabs come to brake the bait out of jail they get lassoed and you just reel them in. And I thought Yo Yo fishing in Arkansas was strange. Thinking out side the box.

I have some of it in my fly tying box. Some times when I put my crap away (cats) I see it glowing green, and I think will it work? Did you tye the belly in glow in the dark or the back? Or just the whole Clouser?
You don't have to overdo the glow, I tied some at first that look like a beer sign when you heat them up with UV

I do add at least a GITD lateral line to virtually every saltwater fly I tie. From a few strands of Saltwater Krystal flash or equivalent, to glow in the dark tubing in various colors and diameters. I can't prove it works, but I can guarantee it doesn't scare fish off.

If you're fishing on a cloudless night a dark fly like a black bugger works very well also. Good luck finding a cloudless night.

Being born and raised in CA I've seen a lot of cloudless nights. I don't know that I've seen a star in the sky since I've been in WA. I do enjoy the clear water thou. Don't see much of that in CA.
