salt water flyfishing part 3

I have been going to the salt on my days off for the last month i was determined to catch a steelhead in the salt water. I never did catch one but i did have a strike one day. After a lot of trial and error this what i learned the fish will be moving with tidal changes best fishing is and hour before the tide change and a hour after the tide changes moving water is the best. I use large marbou flys red white and orange with the extended hook or pink the red and orange is what i had my strike on. I also used a 15 foot rio sink tip line with a moderate retrieve not to fast but not to slow. My favorite place to fish is lagoon point there is lots of room to fish and i diid see fish caught there and the other anglers locals are nice. I also tried floating line with poppers no luck. I tried using a full sink line no luck i tried using my saltwater salmon flys with afast retrieve no luck i tried using a 25 foot seabass line with a small popper and steelhead fly no luck. This is my first year at salt water steelhead fly fishing they say it is a fish for a 1000 cast but i have made 10000 cast have i gave up never give up but might take a week off rom thesalt happy new year everyone
Pace yourself. Keep it simple. Sounds like you are on the right track. Stay away from the floating stuff. Try to stay warm. Enjoy the scenery. It will be a great day when you get one. (me too!).

I don't get a chance at 'em again this year, unfortunately.
