First of all if there is a similar thread to this, please direct me to it! I searched around, but I didnt see anything that answered my questions...
Im recently into fly fishing, freshwater...thing is though, I was raised on saltwater fishing with spinning rods. I love fly fishing though, its so...elegant, and its so much more fun than sitting with a peice of fish on the end of a line.
My question is, I live in the San Diego area, and so of course there is a lot of saltwater fishing close by, and as far as freshwater fly fishing goes, there is only lakes close by, and of course some small creeks, but as far as moving water goes the closest real river is two hours away. So, saltwater would seem like a viable alternative in between trips to the mountains
But of course I really have no idea where to start. There are tons of lagoons and estuaries around, are these viable areas for fly fishing? There was always bass and halibut lurking around in there...
I have mostly seen people fly fishing in the surf, so I dont know really where to start.
As far as gear goes, I have read that you need heavier weight poles and line for saltwater. Is this just for the surf fishing, or would it be needed for fishing lagoons and other still water, assuming that is a viable option?
Just trying to figure out if there is a way I can get a line in the water a little more often
