You’ve booked that bid bonefish trip, what fly rods should you take?
Saltwater fly fishing requires he angler to respond quickly to changing conditions. Having the right gear makes a huge difference. The problem is, if you don’t have a lot of experience, you may not know what is going to work when the fishing gets tough. In this video, I’ll try to help you sort through it.
The big factor in saltwater fly fishing is wind. Either too much or too little of it. A lot of beginning saltwater anglers want to fish on dead calm days. Believe it or not, it’s just as tough to have too little wind as too much. Bonefish can get really spooky when the water is flat calm and the setup you love in the wind may not produce.
“Which rods should I take,” is the question I get all the time.
In my opinion, the fly line is an even more important choice. How the rod and line work together to present the fly is what’s really important. I start by choosing the line I want to fish, then I choose the rod I like to cast it. I find I can carry fewer fly rods and catch more fish.
