Re: Flies in the surf
I am new to fly fishing and the forum as well.
One thing that I have learned so far is that the bigger the rod or heavier it is, the less fun they are to throw.
8wt will be good for most surf fishing. I own a fast action as well as a med-fast action 8wt (TFO). I would recommend going with a faster action rod due to the wind. You will be throwing straight into the wind on ever cast and the more power your rod can generate the better. Look at the Redington Pursuit combos.
Have fun with your new hobby!
And thank you for serving ALL OF US!
