Re: Classic Atlantic Salmon flies
I'll be in Florida in December, but won't be targeting **** (wow, I should have known it was going to bleep that, but I'm just so used to calling them that...) until next spring when the migration gets going. I don't know if I could tie one of those on for tarpon, they're just too great-looking. But if I do, that entire sequence is getting gopro'd! This is setting up all sorts of ridiculously high expectations, since my tarpon experience with a fly rod in my hands (granted it was only one short season with a lack of success for everyone involved, guides and otherwise) has so far been quite limited. Next year will hopefully see more time spent out after tarpon, gotta put a bend in the 12wt....
Don't blame you regarding the typical early season clientele on the SR, see similar activities here on some of our more popular Ontario tribs. Plus I have a lot more interest in the browns and steelhead than the salmon.
Working out a way to convince my university to allow me to hold my TA office hours on the nearby creek...
