thinkin about getting a fly out fit to fish the surf in nj,
wild wood LBI cape may etc.

I was told not to waste my time and money.

i don't care what i catch

just thought it would be cool to wade in the surf flip a few flies around and maybe catch a fish or two

any comments would be appreciated

who in their right mind would tell ya not to ?????

get a mid to tip flex 9' 9wt rod, and decent lg arbor reel and intermiade and a sinking line some 20-40 lb. leader material (anything on the stiffer side will work) some deceivers, bobs poppers, clouser tied on 1/0 to 3/0 hooks. Add a shooting basket (a must) learn to double hall and go for it..

Whoever told you you not to waste your time either doesn't know what they're talking about or isn't a fly fishermen and has only watched FFers get skunked. If you've never fished the surf, it's a seasonal game. I'd wait until late April. May is better. The autumn months are best.
If you do a search, there's been quite a bit of discussion here about the NJ shore in recent months.

i have a strong feeling its going to be a good spring with this warm winter.Probably around early to mid April. They have been catch fish all winter in Jersey and New York. For your first time i would try to hookup with someone else who know a thing or to about the surf. Its a whole new game from casting, finding fish, structure and flies. I would go with a 9 or 10 wt rod but get a reel with a smooth drag and a sinking line i like lansom waterworks reels. LBI is the way to go for fly fishing. For spring your gonna need big patterns like 7 to 10 inches. Bass are gonna be more bait feeders but blues will hit anything and they fight harder. i hope to get down there a few times this spring. Spring = BIG FISH. let me know im always looking for someone to split gass money with.
