Tom Rosenbaur's Tips for Fly Fishing the Surf

June 26, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

In his latest podcast, Rosenbauer describes several important considerations for those interested in fly fishing the saltwater surf. He advises looking for specific clues in currents, looking for the shallowest fish, and using a stripping basket.
Excerpt: “One thing that people have taught me about fishing the surf is looking for ‘guzzles.’ If you a see a spot where there is kind of a foam line that extends back into the surf after a wave breaks, that means there’s additional turbulence or a pocket there, and often those areas around the guzzles will hold both baitfish and gamefish.”
