Default Re: fishing in the surf

I fish the surf at home (the outer beaches of Cape Cod, MA) with a 9' 9 wt. rod and a fast sinking line when it's real heavy out. If it's light surf and light wind, I'll use a slow sinker that way I can still throw poppers or crease flies if need be. I've seen guys using 14 ft. Spey rods casting like a normal fly rod, loaded with 10 wt. line and boy can they really punch a big fly way out there, over the surf, through the wind, whatever. If I was going to seriously get into fly fishing the surf, I'd give that a try for sure.
