I have a few fish listed on fly fishing goals this year and one is Lingcod. I have been privately chatting with a few members either at tying night or out fishing, and now that I have the boat set up, and the right time of year I am ready to tackle. I have been doing a bit of research on flies and line set ups, and just purchased the materials to start tying and a 30ft section of T20 to get them down. I was lucky enough to run into Frank Dalziel at Wholesale, and picked his brain and Mike V. Showed be the most popular lingcod lures which I plan on imitating.
Who else is interested in targeting Lings this year. Was thinking we could get a special Lingcod Night to tie flies and talk about set ups. Maybe even a small lingcod fly swap limited to 4-6 guys.
Anyway who wants in on the 2017 PNW Fly Fishing Lingcod team?

I'm in for sure! As this will be new to most of us, we should definitely have a meeting/demo session to discuss/see what will be required so that when it comes time to hit the water we are all fully prepared. My office is available as always.

Im thinking flies need to be 8-12 inches to discourage rock fish from hitting on the drop. Going to have to be some water shedding materials to minimize weight and not make casting any harder than itll already likely be.
Wow its rad to see him catch so many species on a fly in one day. Red irish lord and lingcod would be awesome. Looking forward to seeing pictures of any successful outings. Flies are looking good. Those chartreuse clousers have to catch fish.
