Old age has struck and I'm drawing a blank on the name of the old style, hard shelled corkies. I bought some over 20 years ago, (that even in those days weren't made any more.) I've got 12 dozen I was going to put on craigslist, don't know what to call them.

Are you talking about Okie Drifters?

About half are red, the other half are the pink/yellow/white.

I have no idea on price but if someone in N. Sound wants to collect and sell them they can give the proceeds to PP. I've had good use of this web site over the years.

I can honestly say I've never fished an Oakie Drifter. Think I have a few stashed away someplace.

I always had other red/orange/peach/cerise/pink things that bonced along, floated off of, or was suspended off of the bottom as it drifted along. Seemed to work quite well for me.

Still have a ton of Birdie drifters. Loved those things. And Jensen Eggs. Haven't fished either in a million years. Apparently steelhead don't like those any more.

Funny how you go from plunking L20 and K9 Flatfish at the Ballard Locks....

..... to drift fishing......

......fishing rags and bait....

....to side drifting...

.....to running plugs.....

....to boondogging....

....to Flydogging....

.....to flow-At's and jigs...

....to flow-At's and a baitweight/bait

....to pitching pink worms.....

...to Flow-At's and wormies...and wormies on jigheads.

....to spoons....

....to spinners....

....to nymphing...

...to swinging flies.....

So far, I just said "no" to beads and centerpins. Don't think I've ever run a side planner, either.

What's the next "hot" technique?

OntheSauk,

I don't think you'll have a problem being relieved of your supply. List them on our classifieds here and they will sell in 5 minutes, probably to Nate.

I have a decent supply and will only fish them on special occasions or rivers. Like when the Sauk opens for example. I've never actually caught a fish on one, but that's mostly because I just never fish em'. The smaller pink pearlescent ones I have look pretty fishy to me, but what do I know.

Incorrect. It's skating Gurglers on the surface with the single hand for snappy summer runs whilst drinking single malt, smokin' Cohibas and talking about your latest tech puts and calls. Whining about how you had to trade your favorite 3 pc Scott for a 4 pc so it would fit in the new Mercedes.

What's sad in all this is that the way Steelheading has been lately with the lack of fish there is no sense wasting any of the Oakies. You're more likely to hook a rock or log then a fish.
