    Re: Fly of choice for halibut?

    Added note of safety;

    I use a 9 weight Salmon rod for the 1 oz. "Flys" and make sure that.......
    the rod is held so the heavy, fast traveling hook does not, in any way..........

    have a chance to get near my ear or head !!


    Carry on.

    I have had good luck with a plain old white or black, 1 oz. lead jig for fishing in tide and salt water.

    Never know what you will hook into.

    Clouser minnow pattern in white with some chartreuse is the Anchovy imitation equivalent of white pickups at the sportsman show. They're everywhere, and work well.

    Fly of choice for halibut?

    I'm going to try my luck fly fishing next week in Tomales Bay for halibut. The last time I caught a halibut on a fly was just below the Coronado Bridge in San Diego. We were drifting and I was tossing a hand tied chartreuse clouser on sinking line. It hit pretty good and it went 23". That was a few years ago. So, I'm going to give it a try up north next weekend.
