    Hi David,

    Tell me a bit more about what you are looking for--Miyawaki Beach Popper? Cutthroat Candy? Gurgler? or ?

    i have been reading about cutthroat fishing on line now for some time, but just joined nwfa and have never done this or any fly fishing before.  i can cast up to 60 feet, which i learned from watching dusty wissmath, pete kutzer, carl mcneil, and sean visintainer.  after reading quite a bit about the flies and their presentation, by many author/fishermen, i decided that if mr. miyawki fishes now only with dry flies that might be the way to go for a beginner.  mr. m's popper seems to be very successful.  i have looked at quite a number of the dries but have no experience, hence no knowledge at all.   i am heading to whidbey in a couple of weeks and would like to get some practice in at lincoln park and/or alki lighthouse with flies i might use before i go.  based on what i've seen 90 bucks for what looks like 15 flies, such as at gig harbor fly,  i'd just as soon spend that within the nwfa.

    I'm headed to Portland to work the Northwest Sportsmen's show where I tie and talk for the next five days. I'll check back with you when I return.
