: Rhode Island report for 7/6

Fishing around the waters of Rhode Island has been outstanding. Last Wed. morning we boated several keepers. Hull Cove and the flats off Allens Harbor at the pre-dawn light brought hard hits from hungry linesides gulping our
eigh-inch squid fly.

We failed to see the crab hatch that has been reported, so we gave the squid fly a try. My client's 7-year-old son landed two keepers, a 32in. 12 pounder, and a 34 inch 15 pound fish (dad had to give a little help). Both on a small
8 wt rod. Boy could he cast.

The best fish was an 18 pound 38 inch fish. Several other short fish were also taken.

Best advise... go very early or late in the day, stick with the large flies deep.

Thank you Capt.Perez -

There are many of us around New England who love Rhody, in fact we had a great conclave there last fall with a group of Reel-time readers. The people who put that conclave together are the ones who make conclaves great on this forum, in any case we have a lot of affection for the RI coast and it's great fishing opportunities.

You can see the photo journals in the <!--http--><a href="http://www.flyfishingforum.com/chronicles" target="_blank">Chronicles</a><!--url--> page.

We hope to hold a bonito / albie conclave this fall, perhaps you could advise as with up to the minute reports through the season?

We appreciate your voice in this community, welcome!

regards,
Juro
