Re: upcoming trip to the salt
I spent a week on the beach in Navarre. I went out before daybreak to fish the beach and on 2 consecutive mornings I took my 5wt. I caught no fish so I would switch to my 9wt and imediatley started catching lady fish.....The following year I spent 2 months in New Smyrna Beach and I again gave the 5wt a thorough try for trout and just could not hook up but as soon as I would switch to my 7wt I would start catching fish. On both occassions I used the same flies. I don't understand why but that was my experiance. The fish size was perfect for the 5wt but I never got a hit at either location. Makes no sense to me.
