a lot of fish we have caught were on a boat, but anchored. certainly didnt pull anchor and come off the wreck just to fight a fish. I dont think that is any different than being land locked. just curious, what species are you targeting from land that you are worried about? most common from shore would be specks, redfish, flounder, pompano, bluefish, skipjack, bonita, etc. none are going to threaten to spool a reel a decent amount of backing. Like capt harry said, most can be landed faster on fly than on spinning. That is because he knows how to use the heavier line to his advantage.
There are many guides across the globe that do wading trips for permit, giant trevally etc. You are not going to come across anything like a GT around here. when in doubt, palm harder and wade deeper.

Yes definitely Harry!

Thanks and my point is that there are fish that can spool out a fly reel while on land and yes the height and space on a pier would be difficult.

I'm gonna use that quote in the future!
If you can get it to eat, and the hook to stick, you can land it. Boat/Land, distance, whatever, it's all just factors/challenges; or for some.....excuses
Lets go stick some fish, then yall can rag my ass for everything I do wrong when I loose it
L8, Harry

If you can catch it on a spinning reel from a stationary (land based location) with 20-30 lb line you can catch it on a flyrod. There is a misconception regarding flyrods and their ability to catch fish or put enough "pressure" on them. The reality is, you can put a lot of heat on a fish with a flyrod, fly reels are capable of holding an awful lot of backing (down side is the one to one retreive on recovering that backing) and IMO a properly applied flyrod is as capable if not more capable of catching a fish once hooked than a spinning rod. The difficult part can be getting the fish hooked. Hope this helps answer your question.

The full length is even sweeter on the fish porn Maybe after the holidays, we can find a bar or location that we can all get together, have some beers, and watch a video every month.

I watched some of that video the other night after reading an article about their excursions to wherever that is. I've already been out of touch lately while daydreaming about the upcoming tarpon season. That video really screwed me up.

Crap, time to change my avatar again in tribute to "the king"
