are they fishable - i always thought no.

Closest I got to getting one is using a sage TCR line (big heavy head).

The Expert distance lines just have a longer belly so you can carry more line in the air because your running line doesn't have enough weight to it to keep the line in the air. Yes you can fish with it the longer belly helps in mending also most stealhead tapers are just about the same as the EXD lines

PS Jdaddy there is nothing special about sharkskin line besides the noise it makes if it gave you more distance than all the casting torny guys would be using it exclusively


There is more to life (and fly fishing/lines) than throwing a line 100 feet.

Because while a fly rod is used, it's not the same fly fishing to me. It's salt water fly fishing. About as similar as spin fishing and fly fishing for trout.

While I am interested as hell in it, it strikes me as a totally different breed of angling, and basically requires tons of new research, gear, and tactics. Too much work for me up to this point. Hopefully next year!


I agree, it's too much work and the chances of landing bigger ones like that are slim. I don't care who you are. Take a plugin rod and enjoy yourself. You'll get in 50x more casts and catch WAY more fish.

As far as taking advantage of the salt, Jersey is marginal. If you really want to get into consistent fishing you need to head north where the fish stay. In Jersey they just pass through for the most part. It's great if your a local and can be there. Otherwise your just hoping the stripers will be there when you take your trip.

While I regard Jersey as world class rather than "marginal," there is definitely some overall truth to this. Take it from a guy who loves the surf and has fished from TX to ME and many states in between.....surf fishing is hit or miss.
For someone like me who has a long drive to the beach, I always take spin gear and enjoy fishing plugs when the wind is ripping or I can't find fish and need to search for 'em. Nevertheless, saltwater fly fishing is fairly easy to learn compared to trout fishing and loads of fun. Don't be discoureged.

Anyway, here's a photo of fly tying innovator and Jersey shore legend Bob Popovics with a recently caught cow that weighed over thirty pounds - and yes, obviously caught from the beach. For many of us, this would be the fly caught bass of a lifetime. Maybe not for Bob, but I'm sure he's right proud of it.

That is a great fish, but a fly-rod thirty isn't a trophy--even from the beach. Forty, yes; thirty, no. Just saying.

Awesome. I've broken 40 tossing eels (still looking for that 50), but never with the fly pole. By biggest on the fly was one pound lighter than yours; couldn't make it 40 no matter how hard I shook the scale.
