4th -10th of August

That is when we will be at the Cape RV and fishing Neah Bay. The "chance at a King Salmon is much much higher in that time frame than in September. Granted the Coho's will be a bit smaller than in September but they are big enough already! Personally come September I probably will be in a different area fishing for Steelheads (more than likely)

Great day on the salt. 50+ would have resulted in lots of bloody fingers. Last year at the end of an 8 day trip I had bandages on 7 of 10 fingers and thumbs.

I have seen you reference a "half and half" in the past but have no idea what you are tying. Could you post a quick discription? Thanks. W

it's just a cross between a clouser and a deceiver.

here's a link

juro: hope this link is okay... couldn't find a non-commercial site with a decent tie of this pattern.

mine are almost identical to the fly pictured.

as for messed up hands, i never start fishing without putting on latex gloves (i purchase mine at a pharmacy).

wish i had had video of yesterday morning. dark clouds, a bit of wind, 6-8' swells, hard ebb current and tons of birds working the water catching the herring the coho were driving up (not a bait ball... more scattered). an image now forever etched in my memory.

i hope to see the swells drop out soon. i'll probably be fishing further out during your next visit ( i hope it picks up out there during the next tidal sequence) but i'm sure i'll run into you and moonlight.

Thumbs up Sweel maybe on way down!!!!!!!

According to the weather underground the swell off of Neah Bay is going to be dropping off next week in anticipation of our arrival for camping and fishing. Also the wind will be lighter and the Jet is going to back off a little which could make it less foggy. But then I am an optimist!

Photos please!

I'd love to see more pictures of these Neah bay chrome beauties from any of you that have been out there this year. We made trip #5 out there last weekend and had decent fishing in tough (swell & current) conditions. Hopefully it will die down a bit before I head out there again (11-14 Aug).

Some beautiful bait-busting by salmon out there last weekend. Some very annoying swells to bob around in as well.
