Fishing the salt from the beach is one of the fastest growing facets of fly fishing, if only because Puget Sound is blessed with so many miles of beach and so many willing fish. September 10 marks the date of the NFA’s annual saltwater outing. This year the NFA returns to Tacoma Narrows Park where several members have had excellent luck in past year’s outings. Join us for the NFA’s annual saltwater outing. This year we fish for feisty resident coho salmon and sea-run cutthroat. Car pool down to Narrows Park. There is no outing fee, so bring your own lunch.
