November 6th WFFC Wet Buns Outing
November 6| Free
Our annual celebration of the drizzle season, once again, Finally! Normal Northwest weather! Chums are staging in the shallow estuaries, the resident coho are there for those who know where to cast, and the biggest searuns are looking for that last meal before a long winter in a little stream.
Seafood stew, prepared by liberally lubricated volunteer labor always tastes best around a big fire. This is the best “outing” meal of the year as far as many are concerned, and is a must do trip for me. So stay away if you don’t like shrimp, halibut, clams, cod, crab, or any of that other fishy food. Yes, there are some vegis in there too…
We will gather at the group camp area at Penrose Point state Park, with dinner prepping starting around 4:00. I Know, that cuts into some fishing time, but it gets dark early these days. We need several volunteers to crack crabs, chop fish, shell shrimp, etc.
Bring your favorite cold weather appetizer, and the club does the rest. This is truly a great outing.
The fishing can be done from beaches, but is done better from a boat. Launches at Vaughn bay, Allyn, Latimers landing, Treasure Island, and Von Geldern cove are all good jumping off spots for South Sound fly fishing.
Orange and white flies, along with olive clousers and dali lamas work really well. Chums like anything small and green.
Members, if you can take another member in your boat to fish at the Wet Buns outing, please acknowledge this in the “I will Assist With” sign-up, so that we can organize members to fish with you.
Sign up for head count and bring a sturdy bowl for dinner. See you there!
