Saltwater and Seaplanes

I think maybe it’s time to get some saltwater reports up here. Here is a little peek inside a guide trip with Sound Fly Fishing and Kenmore Air. We took off from Kenmore Air Harbor after a slight fog delay. We almost had to shoot the Narrows Bridge due to fog but Larry the pilot is fantastic at finding holes in the clouds. Hit the first beach and found a few smaller cutts about 50 feet off the shore. All fish taken were on a Imitator - Oil Slick pattern. Off to the next beech keeping our heads up and all we found was wind. Back in the plane and up in the air again.
Hit a small island way down in the south sound. After about a half hour walk around we found a nice pod of cutts working a slime line about 30 feet off the shore. Landed a few on a secret pattern called Orange Bastard. Fun day!
