Re: Sanibel Island, Ding Darling
Norm is the guy to ask. His shop is awesome and I highly recommend his go-to casting instructor, Joe Mahler. Joe is a class-act, as is Norm. If you're lucky, Joe will host a free clinic at the park across the street from Norm's. Every time I go back to Sanibel, I'll be calling Joe for another private lesson.
Norm will know what flies are working. I had success with his Crystal Schminnow and several deceiver patterns. The schminnows don't survive too many fish strikes though! I have one in my fly box that looks plenty slim and is missing an eye. I may frame it in honor of my first saltwater fly fishing trip.
