Small Flies

Blue Wing Olive

#20 olive polly. That's as small as I tie 'em. Sometimes its too big but I'm not interested in tying anything as small as a #22. There are better ways to go blind.

The Dawn Patrol

Fly Fishing in Puget Sound

"Muster the troops and organize the Dawn Patrol!"
Capt. Trouthole, Thee Commander West Seattle Fly Fishing Auxiliary.

AHW and myself hit the beach early yesterday morning. The outgoing tide formed a rip about 200ft off-shore, concentrating the bait and salmon well out of casting range.
After nearly two hours Thee Commander ordered a tactical retreat.
"We're capered out boys, and these fishes aint shinin' on our loores so lets get thee skunkin over with and fish another morn!"
And so the Dawn Patrol melted back into the treeline knowing that they would return to fish another day.
The End

Thee Trouts Await

Basalt River RR Bridge

The light is changing
The moon's out longer
Fall is upon us
Load the truck.
