Fly Fishing Techniques: Fishing Deep in the Salt

March 26, 2007 By: Marshall Cutchin

Chico Fernandez is one of true pioneers in saltwater fly fishing (think Seaducer flies, fly fishing for billfish and bonefish, and destination angling) and has spent 50 years teaching the subtleties of the sport. If you’ve ever been interested in knowing what grain-weight sinking head matches a 9-weight rod, or how long your leader should be when fishing 20 feet down, Chico’s “Deep Thoughts” is a good place to start. As always, preparation is the key. On MidCurrent.
