Daydreaming

Well all you Monomoy II clavers how did it go? I'm sitting at my desk looking out at a beautiful day with perhaps a bit too much wind and wishing I was on the flats with "the gang". My only consolation is that I will be hitting South Beach tomorrow.

Mike and I tried Brewster yesterday but we don't know the area well at all and we think the tide was wrong. Anyway there were no fish showing and nothing hit our offerings. To beat the skunk we ran over to the Bass River and I got a fluke and a blue while Mike beat his skunk with a Sea Robin.

RE:Daydreaming

Greg,

I'm waiting with baited breath(probably should brush more often)for the first report also since I'm going there tomorrow. Please let there be fish!

At least you brushed off the skunk.

RE:Daydreaming

Not to worry - there are plenty o' fish - just not where we would have liked them: on the flats. Dredging the trenches still seems to be the most productive option for this place - at least in my limited experience.

I was skunked myself, but John nailed a nice 30"+ sideliner and Juro and Bill also took several in the upper 20's, but I'll let them fill you in on the details.

RE:Daydreaming

John caught his on a white and chartruese clouser stripped at a medium clip. Juro was using a dull colored deep running sand eel with a minimum of flash. (Have a look at his post in the fly pattern board).

I can also tell you what not to use: any brightly colored bait fish pattern, Prince of Tides (a.k.a. Bendback), and crazy charlies (this last one has been producing when the fish are on the flats). I spoke to one old timer who had done well throwing what he called a Cayote Fly. It resembled a salmon fly with bright orange wings and a white collar. Sorry, can't be more specific -- only got a quick look at it.

Roop did very well on South Beach (he was the sole member of the group to opt for this spot). The southern point fished best according to him.

I may just have to head down to the Cape now to break this skunky funk I'm in

RE:Daydreaming

Al:

Do not get down ! I truely believe this game of Flyfishing is a state of mind...not that I am some ZEN of the longwands but I really believe that feeling that every cast is near a fish makes a difference......maybe it sounds stupid but it seems to make my skunk days more tolerable ! Anyways, I am wondering if we could connect one nite during the week for some fishing ?? Maybe show me that spot of yours in Wareham ??? My wife and daughter are going to NY for a long weekend and I will be open on a Monday and/or Tuesday. Not sure the exact days but will get back to you.....let me know !

John

John:

I have been pretty succesful in the past with Yak Hair Clousers in Olive/White and Chart/White. I put just a pinch of flash in it. When the fly gets wet, it is very translucent yet extremely durable. I also use gold eyes which seem to give me more strikes and keep them sparse.........Good luck tomorrow !
