My son gave me his flycasting set up, since he moved and cannot use it right now. It is a 9ft. 8/9 wt. Redington Redfly rod. The fly line has been on for years and is brittle and needs to be replaced. I want to become proficient in the art of fly fishing. I fish mostly on IBSP from the beach, fluke, bass, blues. I doubt right now I will make any forays to the jetty. Now here's the questions. Which line would be recommended for this shallower beachfront fishing? Also where in the Ocean County area are there any fly shops or clubs? I'd rather give my business to a local shop than deal with catalog or online purchases. I've watched many videos but all of the info can be overwhelming. I would enjoy getting one on one or even group lessons. I enjoy this forum very much and appreciate any and all help.
Thanks in advance
