Default Re: Little tricks to share

frank, when i was recently in florida i spent some time casting up into some mangroves and actually hit them a couple of times by misjudging the distance. this technique worked every time...even using a couple of fairly large saltwater flies (compared to trout or bass flies for freshwater) without weed guards. once you develop confidence in the technique, it allows you to cast a lot tighter to cover...much the same as a baitcaster or spincaster does when fishing the same type of structure with weedless or snag-resistant lures like soft plastics and spinner baits.
