I've been dabbling in the dark arts of saltwater fishing from the beach this summer...here's a few things I've found...

How many of you folks hit areas where you can catch these guys?

Rods: Blue Halo Gen1 8' 6wt glass; Fisher 8'6" 6/7wt glass
Line: 200gr Rio Avid 24' sink tip (love this line for this application).
Flies: chenille & marabou in red and orange. that's it.
Fish the seams, troughs & rips....
