Sandy Moret's Saltwater Fly Fishing School

Say, did you happen to notice that the “good luck fish” that the Boo Boys hung on their new Sweetgrass Rods shop wall was a permit? (It was one of the first permit caught on fly in the Florida Keys, in the early 1960s.) Tells you something about the saltwater/freshwater Yin and Yang.
If you haven’t yet considered saltwater fly fishing, or if you just need to round out your skillset, Sandy Moret has one of the best schools going, with some of top teachers in the country. Bill Sargeant writes about it in Florida Today. “Moret operates the school from his Florida Keys Outfitters fly shop in Islamorada, and the school is staged at the famed Cheeca Lodge. The $985 fee includes two receptions, use of casting and training aids, lunches and all instruction.”

    I completed Sandy Moret’s Saltwater Fly Fishing School yesterday, May 18th, 2008. Without doubt, it was worth every penny, and more. Not only did it “get the job done” it was an exceptionally pleasant weekend. Getting instruction from and interacting personally with the true founders of the sport (Chico Fernandez, Flip Pallot and Sandy) was an experience of a lifetime. High marks!
