BDF had the chance to fly fish the Pacific Ocean in Northern California recently. Although I only had a few hours to cast a line for surf perch and ling cod, it was a lot of fun.
I recommend always stopping by the local fly shop to buy a few flies, and gather information. As was the case in California, often a local customer will over hear the conversation, and offer some helpful tips about where they are catching fish...stuff that might not even be on the shop's radar yet. I find that folks that fly fish are generally pretty nice folks, always willing to lend some advice.
I enjoyed fishing both the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean in the span of a couple weeks. A great way to start the season!
