welcome to the forum . i live in jacksonville nc and i don't fish the coast that much and when i do its for flounder with a spin rod. i love to flyfish for trout in the mountains but the only reason i thik i dont' fish the saltwater is because one, no boat and two, not an idea of what and where to go. but i am hoping that my buddy i met about a month ago will take me out for reds and said his friend comes down and fly fishes for them i hope that he will not only take me along but hope his friend will be nice enough to teach me how to. well maybe we can get together and do some fishing and have a partner
