Re: School me on Snook

Incoming tide during sunrise this week... looks like high-tide will be at 9:30AM+, so hopefully it will be low enough when I get out there at ~6AM Tomorrow.

Re: School me on Snook

The shoreline is mixed... Vieques is off the east coast of PR, and I can only access the western half of the island (eastern half is closed). I know of really only one spot where a lagoon pours out...

School me on Snook

So, there seems to be overall limited information on flyfishing for Snook... at least, in the capacity that I can actually fish for them. Here are the questions I can't really seem to answer:

Re: Bonefishing Areas - semi-DYI?

Eleuthera in the Bahamas is a great DIY destination. Some other great activities, and some very accessible bonefishing. Almost everything is done wading on foot, and there are miles and miles of...

Re: Looking for a reel recommendation

Pretty great deals right now on the Hardy Ultralite's. I think one in the size you are looking for will be over $150, but it's a lot of reel for that price. If I only had $100 to spend though, I'd...

Re: Best fly reel $100-200

I just picked up the 4000DD and it's a very, very nice reel for what you pay for it on closeout--one of the nicer reels I've ever used. It also makes much nicer clicky noises than my other reels :D

Re: $2485 will almost get you the "essentials" to fly fish

I am headed back to OR for six weeks, and just dumped ~$600-700 and got a very nice rod/reel, waders and pretty much everything I need to spend a few of those weeks trout fishing. I could have done...

Re: The Unicorn...

Yeah, it was very intense, sort of hands-shaking, poor-decision making intense... sort of spent the rest of the day thinking about what I would have done differently, switching to a crab fly, etc. I...

The Unicorn...

So, saw my first permit today.

Not necessarily a big deal for people who see them often, but this was a little more special. I was checking out this little pocket flat, mainly to target snappers...

Re: The American Southwest - trip advice?

Can anyone verify this? How much is a boat rental? We are only planning a day there, so it may be worth it to rent a boat.

Re: The American Southwest - trip advice?

Thanks, that's a great start. So far, I have Lee's Ferry and the San Juan on my must-fish list. I'll definitely add this to the list.

Re: For Those Who Need Fishing Pliers;

I'd probably use them just to cut mono 99% of the time, and occasionally to cut wire bite-tippet when chasing 'cudas. Looks like they'll work :)

Are they aluminum or stainless, or just plain steel? I want a pair of heavy pliers for the salt, and they seem like the best budget option. Mustad and P-Line both make some as well, but they have...

Re: Your First Fly

First fly I think I caught a fish on was a Wulff or Humpy... I have a really vague memory of it, as I was probably 6 or 7.

The first fly I actually tied was just some thread wrapped around a...

Re: Rod Love; the Fly Rod Picture Thread

I have an old Fenwick five weight that I inherited from my Dad after he passed. It's such a great rod. Will lay a small dry down as delicately and accurately as can be. Very fun to fish.

Re: Any recommendations on where to buy SW flies on line

I agree with this. Saltwater tying is much more fun than tying trout flies with tiny, finicky materials. The materials can be cheaper as well.

Re: Spotting bones over grass

Any general tips for cloud cover or other low light situations? Is it best just to wait it out and try to fish at times when the sun is higher, or can you still spot flashes, etc.?

I am planning...
