I offer my interpretation of old and new science, the species' native response to flies, and how anyone—beginner to expert—might approach fishing for these gamefish in new waters.

Jay W Nicholas
first fished with a hand-line in the Bosporus near Istanbul, Turkey in 1955, catching only a few little fish. I grew up fishing San Francisco Bay, lakes in Germany, the waters of Kwajalein Atoll, streams in Montana, and many Oregon waters. Sometime around 1962 I started tying flies on a Thompson Model A vise with Nymo thread (and no bobbin), leading up to my first commercial sales to Norm Thompson’s in Portland, Oregon in about 1964. Fifty years later and thousands of flies produced from various tying vises, I have more than a little experience with trout, steelhead, salmon, and saltwater patterns. The SRC flies featured here in Sea-Run cutthroat Flies and Fishing are all patterns 1) that I have tied and fished myself at various times over decades; 2) that my friend Michael Gorman shared among his favorite summer steelhead and SRC patterns; or 3) commercially produced flies that have proved effective in the waters around Puget sound, donated by Blake Merwin of Gig Harbor Fly Shop.
