October 19, 2010 - NJ Fall Blitz
Well, it has started. Weather-wise, we could not ask for anything
better. It was a fly rodders dream. No waves at all. In fact the
ocean was like a pond. And what little wind there was, only aided
a bit in extending your cast as it drifted over your back from
The fish were there to be had as well. Blues galore in fact.
Some were micro, but others put a nice bend in the rod. We also
found some weakfish mixed in also. This as a nice surprise since
you don't necessarily associate the fall run with weakies.
The key to getting into the weakies was to let the fly sink so
that it got down into the water column. Combine this with a slow
strip. Yellow clousers did the trick. For the blues the faster
retrieve the better. Any color fly with a fast strip produced
a blue. Fun day!
