Man, i just pulled out catch record card and then looked back at wading at pt no pt. It was rediculous the amount of sand lance that would just swarm my legs on the beach. Back and forth back and forth they would go. If i only i knew to flyfish....
I know the feeling M.A.T, I was thinking I should get one of them real tiny flys and a fine leader and go hand fishing without a rod. It might be the next rage in fly fishing, extreme sand lance on the fly
A lot of the times i have found the big pods of sandlance but they will be unmolested, even when there are a lot of predators in the area. Sometimes a popper can be the best thing in a situation like that. Seems to trigger the strike when they otherwise wouldnt be inclined to eat.
I know that Les is far too modest to mention it, but when the book comes out, we will be having a big booksigning party here at Orvis. We'll have some food, champagne and a bunch of guys tying salt water salmon flies.
