Default Does anyone else target these?

Hello, was in the water today throwing around a shrimp pattern and sight casted to this fella(below in pic) got me thinking, they seem very tricky to get one on the hook, they seem like a good target for catch and release casting worm or shrimp patterns on the flats assuming you have them in america lol i thought they are global fish, has anyone else ever targeted stingray?

i had to make alot of repeated casts to get it perfectly near its snout when it jumped over it but i struck to early and it got a little above its mouth, a tip for dehooking them would be to use barbless, reel the fly all the way to the front guide then just push the fly out with the rod so you dont get stung.
