This is a trout website, but it is also a fly fishing website, so why not some salt water pictures?! I just got back from Naragansett Bay RI for Stripers and Bluefish. I didn't have that many expectations because it was my first time on the salt, so when I only got into 3 fish I was thrilled. My very first Striper was landed and was 25'', along with my first 2 Bluefish that were about the same. It was a blast fighting these fish - I suggest it to anyone who can get out there!

These are some great fish and it sounds like a lot of fun. I love fly fishing for stripers in Scituate, MA. I have found out that the Enrico's Everglades, Monkey Brain, and the Fly Flexo Streamer work really well when there are sand eels or baitfish around.

Good luck,

A really good book I just finished up for saltwater fishing in the Northeast is "Fly Rodding the Coast" I'll have to check on the author, but he gives a ton of information on fishing for blues, stripers, bonito, and tuna on the fly including different scenarios and how to fish different structure. I picked it up thinking it may help me down here in the Gulf but I haven't been able to get out on the salt yet without any wheels.
