Things To Keep In Mind For Next Season:
If you are targeting Big Stripers or Bluefish you want to use a 9 or 10 weight fly rod with a large arbor reel loaded with plenty (at least 200 yards) of 30 lb test Dacron backing attached to a 7 1/2' fluorocarbon knotless 20 lb test leader. Basic fly selection should include: large Deceiver blue over white. 2/0-4/0, Half and Half olive over white 2/0-4/0 and a large Sand Eel pattern 3-8" long 2/0-4/0.
And then, we have The Really Big Flies for those want to target "Really Big Bass". I have a large following of clients who book each year during the Spring (mid-May to late-June) during the end of the Alewive and Blueback Herring migration. They want learn how to use Really Big Fly patterns. These flies are from 6-13 inches long with 5/0 to 8/0 hooks. Barbless, of course!
These flies include: Alewive flies, Blueback Herring flies, Mackerel flies and extra large Sand Eel flies. Using these very large flies is not for the faint of heart. You have to learn how to cast them, how to best retrieve them and how to play the big bass that hit them. The old "Big Bait/Big Fish Rule Applies here. You can check out my website for pictures of some of these flies. www.shore-line.com. or https://www.facebook.com/pages/Shoreline-Guide-Service/126329207405315.Good luck and get on the water.
