Saltwater Fly Fishing

Postby squalus » Sun Aug 28, 2005 10:38 pm

I use pike fly fishing tackle for all my saltwater work. The rod is a fox 10ft rod with a aftm rating of #11. The reel I use is a magnum 200d and lines are cheap airflo floaters and sinkers. Leaders are 10 - 15lb nylon. Flies include clousers and sandeel imitations.

well if had a dog fiish on fly it would be the most memorable fish of the year. I managed a weaver last year.

buy hooked on bass my mike ladle and bruce vaughan

inshore flyfishing by lou taboroy

get a subsciption to Irish angler

use a 6 - 7 # in estuarys and a 12 - 14 foot double hander on the beach.

buy clouser minnows - decievers - gurglers (floating line 80% of the time)

job done

PS PUT THE FEKKERS BACK!!!!!!!!!!! You will be to proud to start killing things!

best of luck
