My salty fly fishing Tip-of-the-week: Fish the shallows first, no matter what the tide is doing. Almost every visiting angler, new to these waters, will wade out into hip deep water and haul off the longest cast that they can make right away. Often they will miss the fish that were right at their feet. Sometimes they will be feeding so close to the edges that you can see their dorsal fins on the surface of the water. Don't be in a hurry. Hang back, take it all in, study the edges. And don't hesitate to try a dry fly!

Yes, dry flies work in saltwater too! Try some Muddlers, Caddis, Stimulators, and poppers. You can work into just inches of water with these flies. And there is nothing better than a slashing hard take on the surface in shallow water. Just be sure to give those flies plenty of action. Don't worry about "drag", those flies have to look alive!
