    Saltwater Fly Fishing Questions

    Hi Paul, 1. For surf fishing I use an 8 weight single handed rod. The reason is that you will be casting heavier weighted flies and possibly sinking lines or shooting heads. I have quite a few 8 weights and reserve the least expensive that can cast for places like the surf because the surf...

    Connection Knots for Curious Minds.

    One interesting thing about the testing is that for both the light and the heavy setup the monofilament is the heavier of the lines. I think most setups that I use the braid is the heavier of the lines, and the monofilament is lighter, which is probably how most set up except in the case of...

    2020 Surf Fish Season Pics - PB-MB-TP and IB

    The beach and the surf zone freak me out a bit too. I've been to SE Alaska, places in British Columbia, hiked in bear country in MT and CA, been too close to comfort to griz, and had giant black bears in my backyard in Dunsmuir, CA. For some reason I am even more freaked out by the ocean...

    2020 Surf Fish Season Pics - PB-MB-TP and IB

    I think I used the same rod and have it listed right now in the classifieds. The main reason is that it is pretty decent tackle for the surf, and I feel bad trashing nice stuff at the beach. This rod is a bit light, but I tend to enjoy light tackle as it puts a nice bend in the rod for fish like...
