I plan on trying to make this. Trowpa, you know you can use my Scott A3 if you need to. However, you will need to find a reel.


Thanks! I'm working on long term options (as described in my pm) But i'm not sure how quickly i'd get that all done. So its good to know i have at least a rod to use in case...

I'm really looking forward to this as i've wanted to try the long rod in the salt for years!

If the fish are there, you don't need anything more than clousers in all your usual colors along with deceivers. Rarely are the fish picky that time of year, but I have seen it when they are on small sand eels.

Now, even though this is a fly outing, it is very wise to have one spin rod just in case the fish are out of reach or the winds are just too bad. Sure you can move to the back and maybe get out of the winds, but in the fall you wanna be out front. Hucking metal and soft plastics can often make or break a day at IBSP.

Can anyone recommend a good source to get a basic selection of flies for the salt prior to these jams (ok..jam and joining frederick's vacation)

I have no saltwater related fly tying materials (SS hooks, synthetics, etc) and would rather buy some to start with...figure out what i use most of and then buy the materials, learn the patterns as needed to replenish.

edit: (fyi - checked out my usual haunt for flies i don't want to tie - flystop - and they don't seem to have much saltwater to my eyes)

Thanks

Salt patterns you'll need for these get-togethers on the NJ shore can be very simple. I'd buy three or four packs of synthetic fish hair in white, green, yellow, and black; some salt hooks (you might be able to get suitable hooks at WalMart in a pinch); some dumbell eyes for Clousers. Some white saddle hackle is useful for wing material too. With these basics you can tie Clousers, baitfish patterns, sand eels etc. Most of the flies I use are about 3-4" in length, green over white color. In Fredrick's thread there's a nice post from Sandly showing some basic salt patterns. I don't use poppers much on a fly rod but I usually carry a few.

What are the licensing requirements to fish? Would one need to register with NOAA?

(Edit: I see you covered this in the fine print )

No license needed. Yes - you'll need to register.

This looks like an incredible opportunity and I know you'll do a superduperfabulous job organizing/running it. I'll have to check out my schedule and see what I can work out...

Looks like the steelhead jams are getting a run for their money this year!

Is this Jam beginner friendly? I've casted the fly rod in the salt a little bit on vacation, but nothing serious. I'm interested in attending and hopefully learning from someone more experienced, but I don't want to get in the way of the more experienced guys either.

Fredrick,
Yep, BP was a Marine. I know he served in Vietnam although I don't know much about his military background than that. You'll have to chat him up.

GRP,
Absolutely beginner friendly. I'll be conducting a brief demonstartion on Saturday morning for folks that aren't familiar with salt FFing or IBSP. The original post has some more detail. I'm certainly no expert and don't know IBSP like the locals, but I'm more than happy to spend some time with beginners and show you the surf fishing ropes.

Good for you guys, if I was closer I would go.

Nothing beats cutting down the learning curve by a few years-when you fish with experienced fly anglers.
