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:


The coolest part about this redfish was the photoshop-esque shape of the tail-spot:

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. ;)

@ 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...:worthy:

Thank you sir. We definitely had some days down there during its resurgence, but to hear the stories of the heyday is almost unbelievable. Doubtful that I'll see a fix in my lifetime. Miss that place, highly unique. milt.

I've just returned from a delightful week in the Cook Islands staying on Aitutaki.
I managed ( read negotiated with SWMBO) 2 days guided fishing with Itu Davey.
Now I have to admit to be a freshwater angler and had some problems (read couldn't do) with casting a 9 weight 30 > 35 yards....
However, I did manage to land 2 nice bones - each weighing in between 9> 10 lb...

We were there a little early for the big bull reds, going to go mid-November this time... although, my brother (pictured in the double) did get a shot at a 25lb.+ fish. Unbelievable
