Re: Flies in the surf
I don't get to do much saltwater fishing, but I can tell you that about 10 years ago I broke my shoulder and during the recovery, I found myself unable to cast a surf rod with a week at the shore coming up. I could however still cast my 8wt, so I tied up some salt water flies and gave it a go. I have never, literally never, rigged up my surf rod again. It's just not as much fun. I fish NJ and Delaware mostly, for blues, stripers, and flounder. All three are a blast on the long rod. Prepare to become addicted.
I almost forgot...welcome to the forum. It's a good bunch of people with a lot of helpful knowledge.
