BG_NJ posted a topic in Fly FishingBeen on SOL for a couple yrs now but haven't spent much time non the fly or fly BST forums.. I have a friend who wants to fly fish in northern Idaho in August (mix of targeting chinook/kokanee/trout I think) so I'm gonna do my best to acquire my first outfit and as much practice as possible under my belt in the interim. I've yet to do an extensive weekend scouring of the SOL fly forums (which a plan to do), but wanted to ask what are some of the top fly boards/communities to learn and interact like here. Especially more freshwater focused. I could easily blow this out into a bulleted list of questions about gear/species/books/flies/techniques/etc/etc/etc but I'll refrain for now. Just asking for dedicated fly forum recommendations for research. Thanks in advance!
keithgrahame29 posted a topic in New Jersey FishingLooking for a little guidance. I am pretty new to surf fishing. The only spot I really surf fish from is a beach with current. Not really sure on the tackle to use at this location. I always try to eye-hustle everyone else's setups. However, it's usually too dark to figure it out. Bucktail? size? Do I need a teaser? Do people attach things to their bucktail? Storm Shad? * Had a guy last week tell me to cast left (upstream from the current) and let the bucktail drift for 15 seconds before reeling it into shore? Does this sound appropriate? As short a learning curve as possible would be great. (*edited - I removed the locations from your post. Sounds like you need some generic help with the basics of surf fishing - things that apply to every similar situation. We don't allow overly specific locations here...feel free to ask any fishing questions you want but please don't ask for someone to tell you how to fish a specific spot. Thanks. TimS)
