Flies for Surf perch?

Recommended Posts

Back in Southern California in the 80's I used to tie sand crab flies for perch and corbina. Basically a big fat size 6 scud with an orange butt.

BC,

 

Search for Ken handley in the bay area of Ca or John Shewwey (sp) in Oregon both have flies and a book i think on Surf perching. I knew and heard Ken speak in the 90's in Northern Ca and have done the perching myself.

 

Use an 8 wt and be prepared for big time pulls for those fish that really know how to use wave action to their advantage.
