I agree Ray - PROFILE is the key.Originally posted by CapeMayRay:
Well, it appears that Saltwater Fly fishing is not the rocket science that freshwater is. Everyone has their favorite flies and just about every type and color will do the job. I believe that with saltwater fish all you need is a fly close to the size of what they are feeding on and if you put it in front of them they will hit it.
I think we are pretty lucky. I talk to a lot of fresh water trout guys while they are on my boat and the stories they tell me about how finicky trout are in the clear streams and what they have to do to catch a trout that they have been watching eye their fly. We have it pretty good.
Our biggest problem is our fish are mobile and do not hold in a good spot and what is a good spot on one tide is not a good spot on the reverse tide. Our fish prowl and go where ever the bait is, so our biggest challenge is finding a spot where the fish might me on a given tide. Once we find the spot getting them to hit is a little easier with different types and color taking fish at the same spot.
