How was the chum run this year? According to Bill's few adventures in November, there were no hordes of fanged salmon as I would have expected. Since he just moved out there I thought he might be well to get his butt kicked a few times by the nasty boyz of fall, dem' dawgs.
If I can find my scanner cable I will scan a fly the two flies I would knock 'em with... one chartruese (no surprises) one hot pink. It was amazing how they'd chomp the pink when everyone else had been throwing green at them all day long.
Another member, Fly swap participant, and former PNW resident Gregg Estey used to fish Hoodsport before he moved out here where I've fished with him on three great Conclaves. I found Dennis Dickson's stories about the chum angling gig on Hood Canal very interesting.
They sure ain't chromer steelies but as far as pure uninhibited rumbling they're hard to beat.
