I'm hoping a good tuna season puts some off shore days on the board, but in the end, I'd much rather spend a day above 9000' hunting something that would get get passed on for size in a bait tank. It's a sickness. A crazy, passionate, all-consuming sickness.

like the above person mentioned it, derby hit the nail on the head. actually flyfishing produces a lot of times when traditional methods dont work. when fishing for trout you can catch them all day long when the bait guys or the lure guys arent getting bit. a few times offshore when guys were just drifting paddies and not really getting bit, we slow trolled flies around the kelp and would hook up instantly on yft. its just another way to catch fish when you start to get burnt out.

Depends on what you intend to fish for. For the 3Bs I use a 9' TFO TICR 4pc, which would run you about $230, but comes with a lifetime guarantee. The reel I use is a Tibor Riptide, which is a pricey reel at $670.00 new, but you can get away with others at 1/3 the cost. Line, I'd use the Rio Outbound Short.
Word of caution: fly fishing gear is much pricier than conventional gear because the market is much smaller.
