Ryan -

Take a look at the patterns in the SWFF fly archive

The only consideration for using any of these is to put the hook on the back half of the fly for cohos to get better hook up rates.

- Sand Lances (sand eels, candlefish)
a) epoxy sand eels, 'surf candy'
b) clouser-like sand eel patterns tied on longer hooks
c) slim jims, etc

- herring
a) deceivers
b) bigeye baitfish (Page Rogers)

- squid

- surface flies, poppers and sliders: slim jims, pencil poppers
- deerhair bunny divers

If I have time I will send a few of my favorites for you to test.
