Default Saltwater Fish Photos....Post Here!

As a saltwater fly fisher for part of the year and one who misses the salt for the rest of the year, I'd love to see a thread where people post their saltwater catches... while we could put them in "Fish other than trout" and "warmwater fish" I think we could use a dedicated saltwater thread!

So if that is amenable to the mods, Here's a small snook caught off the beach and an upper-end-of-the-slot nighttime red which inhaled a clouser to kick off the thread:

I have a few pictures, but I'm gonna spread them out so that it's looks like I catch more fish than I really do.

Nice Striper Rip! Is that a piece of Eel Grass or part of the fly?

@ KWB...Dang, those are some slammin' reds, and a sheepy on fly? Way cool. Did that black drum break that rod? or is it just tore down? Great catches...

Busted rod laying next to the Redfish, was a brand new rod, they wrapped a guide too tight...
