  16. Lights out tonight! 3 for 3 on poons, a bunch of snook and a jack. Had to leave the bite cause I broke the tip of my rod. Cursed myself the whole way home. Oh and nice Spanish turned to ceviche this afternoon. Love days like these.
  17. Thank you for your insights. I started fly fishing SWFL last year. Wading flats and beaches. I do not have a basket and have been looking at buying or DIY. I usually just let the line fall on the water but notice current or debris being a nuisance, not the worst but sometimes annoying. On the beach the sand and shore break if any gets messy. I started to just loop the line in my stripping hand and that wasn't 1/2 bad. I never see anyone fly fishing where I am and try to visualize the space between the basket and my stripping. Do you wear down on your thighs or more the belly. Sometimes I'm belly deep.
