Sound Fly Fishing

A Saltwater Guide Service - Seattle, Washington

Winter 2015

01/07/2015

Whoa, it seems as if fall has lasted about 2 months longer then it should. Yeah, we have had some cold snaps but overall the air and water temps have been much warmer creating some awesome fishing. The central sound to south sound have been consistent in producing multiple fish days and even some really banner days. As of today (January 7th) the fishing remains good. Go!

Our favorite flies this time of year range from orange over white, chartreuse and white. All baitfish patterns in the 1-3 inch range.  We have really been diggin the mini seducer in orange, this thing is deadly.  

A couple things news worthy and fun:  We have come up with what we think is the best Puget Sound beach fly line. Working with Rio Products to design this new line was a blast and we have fished the prototype for a few weeks now and cannot find a thing wrong with it. Think – easy distance with accuracy for any angler. We will let you know when the line is available and where to buy it.

Over the years we have developed a large appetite for tarpon. Key West to Mexico the Gulf of Mexico has been a new home away from home. Working with the great people at Fly Water Travel and Pacific Fly Fishers, we will be offering a few tarpon trips a year to those of you interested. Although the hook set and fight is much more aggressive than cutthroat (obviously) your Puget Sound skills will transfer over nicely to tarpon. There will be much more info on our website shortly. 

Spring fishing dates are starting to go. If you have interest in spring fishing the chum salmon smolt hatch let us know. It usually is bonkers out there and a lot of fun to be a part of. As usual summer is booking fast and August is almost full.

2014 products we fell in love with this past year:

Simms Oceantek boot

 Simms Slick Jacket

 Winston B3-SX fly rods

Once again 2014 was our best year yet. We could not live out our dream without you all who have chosen us to guide you on the beautiful waters Puget Sound. Thank you!
