Saltwater Fly Fishing
As a saltwater fly fisher, when flats fishing, the two biggest concerns are; the weather during the trip and can the angler cast well enough to get it done. As far as the weather, don’t sweat it, you can’t change it. For the casting, that is something you certainly can control. The more time you spend casting bugs to any fish, the better off you will be on the salt. Many trout anglers venture to the salt without a knowledge of how the change in venue can be so difficult to adjust to. In the salt, while flats fishing, you’re casting from a boat, which may be moving, the fish will most likely be moving and there is a 99% chance that the wind will be blowing. All these variables accompanied by an excited angler and a guide barking out commands in Spanglish add to the challenge of putting the fly in the right spot at the right time.
