"Coastal's" Twist Tail Fly Ends S.C. Slump



Group:

It seems that my long fishless spell at Salt Creek Beach is over.

I've caught fish on my last few outings there now, and all on a rootbeer brown conehead Crystal Bugger variation with a Latex twist tail that was given to me by "coastalflyfisher" a year ago.

Thanks to "coastal," my narly year long Salt Creek Slump is over!

The slump....



JP,

Glad the "slump" is over. That fly, during certain times, is my go to bug. The big perch at San "O" inhale that thing more than orange patterns fished in a tandem set-up. I've yet to catch a Corbina on it but a four and half foot Leopard ate it last spring and took me up and down the beach for 20 minutes before I could see what I had on! Congrats again!

Are the crab beds forming yet? Have you fished Doho lately?

Fly Science



Good to hear that you are getting into fish down there, Jerrold. Have you tried any experimentation on your new home beach with a) something like a brown Newport Special or b) orange flies with twist tails? It would be interesting if you could identify just what range of fly designs the fish will accept.
