Thank you for the kind offer, likewise anytime you get out to Cape Cod!

I would love to apply some of the atlantic coastal techniques to Puget Sound, my ol' stompin grounds. I would imagine that in the Narrows ripline a quick descent line or even lc-13 would put a good looking candlefish fly on a long shank hook with an active tail in shimmering emerald greens, chartreuse and silver/white (small eyes, etc) twitched in the rips when there are fish up high in the column dawn/dusk would do the trick - if you could keep the coho off the line. Man, if I still lived there I would be spending a lot of time figuring this out.

I can visualize Mt.Rainier looming pinks and pastels over the evening horizon on a hot summer day with mint bright salmon threading through the jade depths, the smell of the saltchuck and the sound of shearing water in the rips.
