Saltwater flies (Bass,
Blues, Trout & Albies):
highlighted below in
blue have caught shad, gray trout,
speckled trout, flounder, sharks, striped
bass and bluefish. Pay close attention
to the Go2Fly
as "Go2Fly" are
flies that consistently perform and as such
are part of the Go2Fly (G2F)
Series. These are flies worthy of a
permanent fly box location.
- The saltwater flies I use range in weight
from light to very heavy. The reason
for the wide selection is that 95% of time
I'll fish an intermediate line. The
various weighted flies allow me to cover the
full water column, from surface to bottom
without changing lines. This fishing
style works for a majority of fishing
situations, regardless of whether it's from
a boat or shore. There are times
though that weighted lines work best,
usually reserved for extremely deep or fast
water. Remember too that many fish
will look-up in the water column for forage.
Striped bass will easily travel 10' in the
water column to strike a fly. Lastly,
one line simplifies things and allows more
fishing time. I typically top the line
off with 6.5' of straight 20 lb.

These are not
the only flies I use, but over the years
they've been proven winners.
Experienced is based mainly on the Jersey
Shore, Martha's Vineyard, Eastern Shore and
the Chesapeake Bay.
