Default Dock Fishing

Had a fun outing tonight fly fishing the dock lights. Got two small reds, three trout and a blue fish. Time for bed.

No spectacular fish, but it was a lot of fun. The company was good too.

Nice job! I have a fly rod, but have only used it for bass fishing. I now want to fly fish for specks and reds. What kind of tackle did you use? Tippet? Fly? Floating or sinking line?

8 wt fly rod with Mastery weight forward floating.8 wt is good all around saltwater rod. The Mastery line is tropical line that does well in the heat. We were using deceiver flies and clauser minnow's. Those are two staples for salt water. YOu don't need sinking line for most normal saltwater applications, but the clauser's sink a few feet on the leader. Flies don't need to be big, 1"-3". Those two flies will work for trout, reds (of all sizes), spannish, lady fish, and just about anything else. Two others that could be added to the collection are a small foam popper and a topwater slider/chugger like a dahlberg diver. The Dahlberg diver is great for shallow water reds (use some floatant to keep it dry and on the surface). The popper is great for trout and a lot of other stuff. I like the small green foam ones with a little feather behind it. Right at sunrise and sunset is the best.

Hope that helps

De Nada. Also, just remembered you asked about leader. Typically use three different weights of line connected with blood knots. Taper down from like 20 to 12 to 10. ~3 feet, ~2 feet, ~2 feet and that will roll over pretty good. It can be longer. If you are fishing for something toothy you can add a foot or 18 inched of higher test at the end or even a little coated wire.
