BAIT, now there is a term that makes many fly fishers cringe, however if you fish the saltwater the talk is always about what baits are running or what baits the fish are eating. You might say that the discussion of baits is part of the saltwater fly fishing culture, at least in my area. The importance of the bait can not be over stated, this is what the fish are eating and what we strive to create imitations of in hopes that the fish will eat our creations. Therefore, we need to understand where the bait is found, how it swims and acts, is it a solitary creature or does it move in groups or schools and finally what is the availability of the bait to the fish? Find the Bait and you will find the gamefish it really is as simple as that!
